The Good Food for Cities (GF4Cs) Project, which seeks among other things, to contribute 20 percent increase in income and job creation for 2,000 smallholder producers of health, sustainable, and nutritious (HSN) foods in Rubavu District, has been launched.

The project focuses on professionalisation of smallholder farmers in Rubavu to increase vegetable production, ensuring proper postharvest handling (for this perishable produce), marketing, and market access with emphasis on regenerative agriculture practices – the farming practices which restore soils by increasing their organic content to improve their fertility.

GF4Cs is a 5-year initiative running from July 2022 to June 2026 and implemented in Rubavu District in the Western Province of Rwanda.

The project is funded by the Belgium Directorate-General for Development Cooperation and Humanitarian Aid (DGD) through Rikolto SON and implemented by Kilimo Trust Rwanda and Rwanda Consumers’ Rights Protection Organisation (ADECOR).
