Restorating native trees for smallholder farmers

Planting trees on and around farms has many benefits. In rural Rwanda, your trees prevent erosion, increase soil fertility and water retention, and ultimately lead to higher, more predictable yields. This, in turn, means more food, income, and independence for local communities.
