The One Tree Planted team is dedicated to planting trees to restore our planet around the world. The organization was founded in 2014. Since then, we've planted over 40 million trees in 47 countries.
It is an incredible result. We were able to achieve it thanks to the support of philanthropists from all over the world. And we're not going to stop. The One Tree Planted team is preparing for more plantings around the world to make our planet even greener.
Reforestation in Rwanda
Rwanda's forests support a wealth of biodiversity and natural resources but has been subject to deforestation for unsustainable large-scale agricultural practices. Smallholder farmers feel the impacts of that degradation and understand the importance of landscape restoration for water, energy and food security.
For this reason, a women's team led by local farmer Agnes Uwifashije is working with One Tree Planted to restore forests in Mukura.
Planting 50,000 trees in Rwanda
As part of the Humance project, the One Tree Planted team will plant 50,000 trees in Rwanda to make a difference in the fight against deforestation in the region. But we can only do this together with you.
