MISSION & VISION
Kigali Farms works to help fight chronic malnutrition by providing
the foundation of a sound mushroom industry, allowing mushrooms to
become a meaningful part of the Rwandan diet.
We think of mushrooms as the forgotten, high-impact crop. Mushrooms
require minimal land, lots of fresh weather, high humidity, and grow
best with the kind of attention and care women best provide. Most
importantly, their nutritional value make them a perfect fit for the
traditional Rwandan diet. With these very qualities, mushrooms can equip
Rwandans with a crop that is easily grown and consumed.
Today however, they are produced inefficiently and with high costs.
Kigali Farms strives to improve mushroom productivity and bring
mushrooms within reach of most Rwandan household budgets. We hope to
witness mushrooms in Rwanda to be as plentiful as tomatoes, carrots, or
We envision mushrooms as the most cost-effective source of protein
for anyone in Rwanda, one that will provide many Rwandans with
opportunities of livelihood earn a new income and a healthier diet,
simultaneously tackling food insecurity and malnutrition.
