Welcome to the Website of FMU:
A Congolese Integrated Agro-Pastoral Farm based in Kawizi-Uvira in South Kivu that seeks Sustainable Solutions for Ending Hunger and Malnutrition in the Region.
While we gratefully acknowledge the humanitarian assistance provided by the international community since the outbreak of armed conflicts in 1996, we can not simply rely indefinitely on imported food aid.

FMU est une ferme agro-pastorale intégrée congolaise basée à Uvira-Kawizi au Sud-Kivu qui cherche des solutions durables pour éliminer la faim et la malnutrition dans la région.

Alors que nous reconnaissons avec gratitude l'aide humanitaire fournie par la communauté internationale depuis le déclenchement des conflits armés en 1996, nous ne pouvons pas simplement compter indéfiniment sur ​​l'aide alimentaire importée.. 

FMU is an integrated agropastoral farm created in response to the need for new strategy for eradicating hunger and malnutrition in eastern Congo. The farm is located in Kawizi -Uvira in South Kivu Province, approximately 124 km from Bukavu (province capital of South Kivu), a few kilometers from Ruzizi River, extreme north end of Lake Tanganyika & 25 Km from Bujumbura, capital city of Burundi. 
 

The idea of creating an integrated agro pastoral farm in Territory of Uvira grew out of concerns that years of massive internal displacement coupled with forced migration due to uncontrollable insecurity, sexual violence against women, and endless war conflicts appear to be dragging people into terrible conditions of hunger and malnourishment.The combination of all of these factors continues to force people in rural areas  to not only flee their homes but also abandon their agricultural and pastoral activities. For that reason,  food prices are increasingly higher than other places. Often people eat a single meal a day.


The desperation and misery experienced by growing people in the territory of Uvira compelled us to make this effort

Our mission is to provide sustainable solutions for ending hunger and malnutrition in the territory of Uvira

The specific project objectives are to:

(a) Make food more accessible to those most in need;

(b) Increase farmers’ income;
(c) Improve soil conservation and productivity
