Deforestation in Rwanda has been driven by the need for food, medicine, charcoal, and timber. The loss of tree cover in a rainy, mountainous country has had severe environmental consequences. In addition to tremendous loss of biodiversity, the region experiences soil degradation, erosion, and landslides.
Agnes Uwifashije, a farmer and leader of a women’s cooperative in Mukura, feels the impact of degraded lands through reduced harvests, income, and food. She and her neighbors want to revive the fertility of the soil in a degraded area surrounded by the Gishwati-Mukura Forests, the newest reserve officially gazetted in 2016. Plant trees here and help this community-led project come to fruition.
