In Burundi, a new project is rapidly transforming the agricultural sector, bringing many farmers hope, prosperity, and improved food security. The Great Lakes Accelerated Innovation Delivery Initiative Rapid Delivery Hub (AID-I GLR) Project—locally dubbed Kugwiza Project (which means ‘to increase’ in Kirundi)—through its partnership with the International Potato Center (CIP) and local and international scaling organizations, including World Vision, Welthungerhilfe (WHH), One Acre Fund, CoopEden, and Cooperative Haguruka, is at the forefront of this transformation. AID-I GLR is strengthening the orange-fleshed sweet potato (OFSP) value chain and changing lives.
