  • Female farmer empowerment and education in Rwanda
  • Preservation of tradition and culture in the Andes mountains
  • An increase in income for marginalized communities in India
  • Want to support communities this Giving Tuesday? You've come to the right place! Reforestation is one of the best ways to create lasting social impact. This Giving Tuesday, we're focusing on community-led projects, and any donations made on this page will go directly towards reforestation initiatives that are focused on supporting native communities and the vital work they do to get trees in the ground. 🌱
  • By partnering with on-the-ground organizations and nurseries, we will harbor a sense of community by supporting marginalized communities, generating stable incomes, and creating jobs. Reforestation will not only help communities economically, but also improve their health and wellness by providing nutritious food and medicine that they may not have had access to before. Utilizing sustainable agroforestry methods, these projects will improve livelihoods for generations to come.
  • personalized tree certificate (see gallery) to say thanks for your donation. We'll also send you updates on our community-led projects, so you can track the impact your trees are having on the ground!
  • In order to empower local communities across our multiple projects, we will plant an array of native tree species for each of the three regions, including species like arabica coffee, banana and grevillea in Rwanda; polylepis, spanish cedar, and white carob tree in the Andes; and papaya, guava and moringa in India.

The Power of
Community-Led Projects

Reforestation in the Andes and Queuña Raymi

Want to learn more about our Andes project? Watch our short video about reforestation in the Andes and Queuña Raymi, the festival of the polylepis. Communities gather, play music, perform ceremonial planting dances, walk together up to a planting site and collectively plant tens of thousands of trees in a single day. Why one day? To send a message to the rest of the world, about what is possible if we work together for a common goal.

Highlighted Community-Led Projects

Restoring the Knuckles Mountain Range

Female Farmer Empowerment and Education

Rwanda

Our reforestation partner KULA works to eradicate poverty through the development of entrepreneurs in Rwanda’s coffee-producing communities. Over the past 3 years, we have planted over 250,000 trees and empowered over 300 farmers — the majority of whom are women. Upon maturation, the coffee seedlings that are planted, grown, and maintained by the participating farmers, can provide sustainable income for farming families for up to 30 years.

Preserving Tradition and Culture

Andes

One Tree Planted has partnered with Global Forest Generation to support Accion Andina, the first multi-country, large-scale, grassroots initiative to restore the high-altitude native forests of South America's high Andes. Working with local and indigenous communities, the seeds are collected from nearby Polylepis forests and grown by local and indigenous people in community nurseries. The overall objective is to restore 1 million hectares of high Andean forests across 6 countries over the next 25 years. The trees planted are helping restore wetlands, safeguard existing forests, and protect critical Amazon headwaters.

Restoring the Land of the Jaguar
Protecting Leopard & Hyena Populations

Increased Income for Marginalized Communities

India

One Tree Planted has partnered with Sustainable Green Initiative (SGI), a local organization with one simple but powerful objective: to plant (mostly) fruit trees to fight hunger, poverty and climate change. Under this model, fruit tree saplings are distributed to the homesteads of marginal farmers, campuses, orphanages, old age homes, and other places of need. With the help of local Vrilksharakshaks, or “tree ambassadors”, farmers are given fruit trees and encouraged to practice organic and sustainable farming practices. In this way, planting trees helps foster environmental consciousness and sustainability in rural communities.
