The Kiziba seedbank was established in June 2010 in Kabwohe site as part of a project to improve the productivity and resilience of seeds for farmers through enhanced use of crop varietal diversity, focusing on Common bean and Banana. Common bean has been primarily managed by women, therefore this project not only benefitted local farmers but it also benefitted women in terms of availaing them with the much needed diversity, and equipping them with the capacities to grow better seeds for better yields, food and seed security.
