Apollos DUSABIMANA | Henry Mapesa 
Abstract: The word Girinka, loosely translated as ?may you have cows, ? is a greeting model which is more like a blessing upon those one meets. It was first instituted by King Mibambwe Gisanura (+1660). The King decreed that ?no Rwandan child was ever to lack daily milk. Girinka programme was revived in 2006 by President Paul Kagame after realizing the extent of malnutrition and stunting among Rwandan children. Since then, Rwandans have given cattle to one another. Therefore the Innovation diffusion theory was used in the study to explain how the farmers in Gisagara district monitor well their agricultural livestock farming using the Information Communication Technology known as E - Girinka. The last section of this article give recommendations on how E - Girinka program can be improved to give farmers better services.
