HN 21 | Serving Up Smiles

BY CONSOLATE HAKIZIMANA


My name is Consolate, and I'm a 27 year old farmer who likes to laugh. I am married to Gerard, and together, we have one daughter and two sons - Chanelle is eight, Claude is six, and Manasseh is just two. We live in Jene community in Burundi.

My responsibilities as a Burundian woman and farmer are many. I am always busy working on our land and making sure I am planting different types of food for my household. After working in the fields, I start gathering firewood, fetching water, and cooking dinner. Then I feed my family and bathe my young children. For fun, I enjoy visiting my relatives and neighbours to chat and share drinks together. I also like to go to pray with other community members in community prayer meetings.

Our life before receiving the dehydrated soup was quite different because we didn’t have any idea about the soup; we used to just prepare and eat what we can access in our community. We were not eating enough. When the vegetable soup was introduced in our community, we liked it and wished to have it in plenty. The content of the vegetable soup amazed us since it contains many varieties of vegetables and nutrients. FH explained to us its benefits. After consuming it, we found it so delicious - my kids liked it so much!

Considering its health benefits, I can say that my life and that of my household has improved because of eating this tasty and delicious food. I can see that my children are more healthy than they used to be, and they don’t fall sick as they used to, either.

My dream is to know how to make dehydrated soup myself one day using local food so that I can have it available in my household all the time.
