Mumeya leaders and community members continue to move ahead on economic development, applying the principles and methods learned from Pr. John.
The Mumeya community has begun construction of a multipurpose building near the Mumeya health center, after the Mumeya Local Organizing Committee organized their labor and their financial resources. The new building will house a restaurant serving health center staff and patients, a community meeting/training room and a space for crop storage. The restaurant will generate income for community enterprises. The meeting room will provide space for community leadership to plan community projects like electrification, water, and co-op development, as well as space for training new leaders from Mumeya and beyond in the PICO Rwanda model of organizing. The storage space allows crops to be stored and marketed in off-harvest seasons to increase individual income for Mumeya farmers.
