My name is James Mushinzimana from Rwanda Eastern province. I joined Thrive (formerly Organics 4 Orphans) in 2015 when it was my first time knowing how to grow vegetables and eat greens. It was difficult for me because I was used to eating cassava flour and never ate greens. Malaria used to attack me everytime my body was weak. After understanding about natural medicine, specifically Artemisia, I no longer experience Malaria. I am now a trainer for Thrive where I enjoy helping my family and surrounding communities to grow health.
