Due to the high population density, there is a large shortage of agricultural land in Burundi, and therefore also a food shortage. In the countryside, children often eat only one or two small meals a day. The fertility of the soil decreases through intensive use. Manure is therefore very important for growing crops. Animals die too quickly due to a lack of veterinarians, which causes the disappearance of a source of manure, food and income.
