Vi Agroforestry has a country office in Kigali, Rwanda. In Rwanda we focused strongly on equality and gender issues. Our partners in Rwanda have devoted energy to improving the quality of and access to good nurseries. This has led to increased tree planting and also increased survival of the plants. Recent years Vi Agroforestry has increased the work in Rwanda by introducing more local partners. We increase the capacity of the farmers’ organisations in sustainable agriculture and agroforestry to fight poverty as well as strengthen the members’ voices to increase democracy within their organisations.
