On Lake Tanganyika in Burundi, water hyacinth is harmful to biodiversity.

Kathia Gretta IRADUKUNDA, through her company, “Hyacinth Art House”, has found a profitable way to fight against these plants, by using them for the manufacture of art objects.

Thanks to this company, several women, with whom she collaborates, earn an income which enables them to live better while contributing largely to the purification of the lake.
