Canadian Lutheran World Federation (CLWR) is working with Lutheran World Federation Burundi to responds to the needs of IDPs, returnees, and vulnerable host community households in Ruyigi and Cankuzo provinces who are experiencing acute and chronic food insecurity, which is being worsened by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The immediate causes of food insecurity include low incomes, rising food prices, and low agricultural production.

The project will provide cash transfers and organize farmer field schools, develop community assets through cash-for-work (with Village Development Committees), and organize VSLAs.

The project aims to reach and benefit 1,200 households (6,060 people).
