About: The Nyagashiha washing station is one of 13 mills that form the Akawa project, created to help producers escape the cycle of poverty in a sustainable way. The project emphasises good agricultural practices, environmental responsibility, and social equity. Nyagashiha is located in the Murago region just south of Bujumbura. The annual average temperature is cooler here than other parts of Burundi which causes the cherries to develop more slowly, increasing their sugar content. Nyagashiha placed 20th in the Cup of Excellence in 2019.
