Burundi has experienced a difficult economic situation in recent years, which has been marked by macroeconomic imbalances. To compensate for the loss of external resources, there has been an increase in domestic resource mobilization, but this has not been sufficient to meet a continuously rising social demand, driven by sustained population growth. However, knowing that the main activity in Burundi is Agriculture; in its way of contributing, IPSDI BURUNDI works hands in hands directly with the population via the rural cooperatives (Bubanza, Cibitoke) in order to respond directly to the problem from different Income Generating Activities (IGA), agriculture (rice, soy, maize, etc), and breeding (goats, chicken, rabbits, etc).
IPSDI Burundi provides direct assistance to the population ( rural population) passing through cooperatives creation and assistance. We work also to improve livelihood opportunities for long trm economic WellBeing.
Increasing Food Productions is the first priority through cooperatives Activities:
Increasing social relation by prioritizing meetings and discussions amoung cooperatives members.
Increasing economical growth through income generating activities (shops, soap making, Tailoring, etc), VSLAs.
