Mr Dungrila Pascal Mbimenyuy in his well fenced tomato demonstration plot.
Mr Dungrila Pascal Mbimenyuy, 28 years old was born and grown in a rural community. He is one of the
many Young people who could not attend a certain level of education, due to poverty caused by loss of
livelihood. This did not stop him from pursuing his goals but rather gave him the courage to forge ahead
to reach out to many others. After his secondary education, he attempted several activities to raise
income to support his younger brothers and sisters, to attend just the same secondary level that he did.
And finally, he settled down as a vegetable gardener. He has been a vegetable farmer for the past four
years. Even with all his years of farming experience and as demonstration farmer, he is still determine
to learn some new approaches for producing vegetables and expanding compassion in agriculture, by
creating an NGO and starting an Integrated Organic Garden in his community, which aims to do
experiment, build collaboration, and carry out training and promotion activities to raise awareness of
the role of vegetables for improved health and rural poverty alleviation.
The demonstration aimed to show differences between various agricultural practices promoted by
Dungrila Pascal Mbimenyuy and his Organization, and the usual methods farmers practice in their fields.
A set of improved variety of farming methods, based on a regular research and learning carried out by

Dungrila, leads to better plant growth, improved plant health and higher yields. All of which support
poor families and increase their income.
