Millennium Fellowship Project: Icyerekezo
Icyerekezo project supports the agriculturist from high mountain to get the agroforestry trees which supports the land users to reduce the negative impact of heavy rainfall also maintaining their land during rainy season as well as booming the biodiversities. In facts, these trees can control runoff and soil erosion, thereby reducing losses of water, soil material, organic matter and nutrients. Hence enhancing the excellent quality of the soil materials and will result in sustaining the development through improving the agriculture sector, the backbone of our country economy.
In September 2019, the project provided 2000+ agroforestry trees to the community people from Kagano Village, Uwinkingi sector, Nyamagabe district in Southern province. The trees were not enough for all the people who were there, and I think I still have to provide the other trees to the people, finding the ways that I should give back the community. By May 2020, 99% of the agriculturists would have the required trees on their farming.
