I want to let everybody to know that social networks have helped me in several ways. I don’t have the time to write everything but know that things are evolving in a good way.
All this from Yaga Community, from where I learnt the real use of social networks for the first time. I don’t think if people who took my arms know how Very Important People they are to me. Dacia Munezero Alain Amrah Horutanga Spageon Ngabo Armel Gilbert Bukeyeneza Anicet Nyamweru M Ichael Josefowicz Dasaratha Rama I miss the words to use. Yaga is the root of all what I am now. Here, I mean the use of internet. Yaga is the first community I joined using Facebook. It was in october 2015. At that time, I was at zero level. I know how Yaga helped me, correcting me without hurting my heart. I miss words….
World Merit was the 2nd community to be joined. It was in 2016.
The journey was very long, but only zeal guided me. Starting 2018, I started to report for a social enterprise based in the New York City. This helped me to come back to the use of english. I learnt the six components of using social networks. This lesson and many others have been invaluable.

Yaga gave me the global vision. Remember that menyasite.wordpress.com is the best of Yaga. You have seen MenyaMagazine. Right now, in partnership with Printernet Zine, we have Menya Zine and we are moving toward a given destination. I want to thank my coach who is helping me in that journey.
Yaga is the mother of all what I do now. With La Nova News, things are like you see on the picture.
I think that you see that Yaga Burundi is not a simple group like some of us think, but it is a community that picked me from rubbish and put me where I am now.
In my brain, three unforgettable communities :
1. Yaga Community
2. Every – yes every – Child will read in the world
3. La Nova News.
Thanks to everyone of these communities. Continue to guide me because I still in need of your help.

Many organizations have tried to diminish unemployment. It is known that unused labour is sixty percent in african countries. After they tried to empower unemployed graduates in order to start their own business, INNOVA GROUP, the social enterprise is making the difference. The fight of the unemployment was to start at small age. It is in this way it is helping people including students.
This enterprise has done and is doing greater things. For young entrepreneurs, they provide coaching on proposal writing, business plan and many other services in entrepreneurship. I remember the Social Initiatives Support Project in which coaches were sent in many provinces to help local ngos, enterprise and cooperative

There are some years, I heard Moringa tree informations. It is a complicated tree but a must have. This medicinal tree is very important for our daily life. Many people do not know its importance. For me to know it, I learned it in the Nation 2 Nation Christian University based at Gitega City.
Problems of seeds
This tree is quite new in some regions of our country. They that want to farm it meet many problem. In additional to the lack of its seeds, it is very hard to grow it in the regions due to the climatic conditions. When we want to get the seeds, we have to buy them. Every thing is new. So, we need empowement. The picture below shows the concern if biodagradable seedlings. To avoid the use of plastics, we make local seedlings with biodégradable materials. This enable us to protect environnement.
Moringa seeds at hand
After I learnt many things about Moringa, the idea of farming it came in my mind. Like it is a new tree, it is difficult to get the seeds. What we have to do is to investigate how we can get them. In some years, Menya Foundation will launch a project to multiply that tree.
This Menya Foundation is a social entreprise who brings new things in the society. It brings positive change by impacting the community. When everything is ready, we have 5 years to come
As it is today. We are on the way of oroducing our own seeds. To accomplish that, the Menya Foundation has done a small nursy af Moringa. This will help us to get seeds Without expending our money.
Moringa is a very important tree. It will bee good if one family will have 10 Moringa trees.

The power of connection is the whole story of the connection of Menya Foundation to Printernet New York. This will help many people who think that networks can’t play a vital role in their users. In this story, we will specify the role played by one of our Facebook connections: Printernet New York.
1. How did this happen?
This happened when I was asked to repoter for Printernet project Mubuga. As a blogger, it was very simple for me. The task is to give a weekly report about the project. As I continued to read other posts in our group, I was inspired and began to write entrepreneurs stories. It was very amazing and many of our readers saw that we were worthy to be supported. From that time, Menya Foundation got the first connection. Whith the coaching of the connection, we, Menya Magazine Club have accomplished great works.
A. The role played by Printernet New York
This our connection played a vital role in all what we accomplished as Menya Magazine Club.
1. Printernet coached us and we were able to produce a magazine. This shaped the villages and our readers.
2. We were planning a one week entrepreneurs conference and Printernet, together with Growing Systems of Success Dailly helped us to get a prototype for entrepreneurs conference. This was a great help and led us to the success of the conference.
3. Our connection supported us in the one week conference. With the prototype, we had great moment of teaching the GSS components.
4. Printernet designed the certificates of the conference attendees. This put us to another level.
All these achievements happened because we were connected to the very important people. This is what we call the power of connection.
