Rwanda’s vision 2030 and 2050 is to becoming medium income earner country with major achievements made in all sectors. However, climate change, is also a major global phenomenon with serious local implications, threatening to undermine the achievements. Although Rwanda in particular and Africa in general, have contributed very little to global warming, they will be disproportionately be impacted by climate change. Rwanda’s natural resources are particularly vulnerable because of the high pressure of exploitation they are exposed to, the fragility of ecosystems and low levels of technological innovation. That’s why Good Change Rwanda (GCR) have decide to stand up and contribute to the planting of more trees to reduce the country’s vulnerability and significantly lower the costs of responding to climate change but as well as support communities in socio economic program through agroforestry vegetables planting by working with the most vulnerable people in Jali Sector of Gasabo district in Kigali city suburb as the pilot which will be repeated countrywide.

Between April 7 – July, 1994, decisions made during the Rwandan Genocide came with consequences to perpetrators and victims of atrocities, leaving scars still crusting in varied levels of healing. And then there are some – a small number – who made the decision that if forced to watch suffering and death of another – they would step up, step in, intervene, carry the load, and protect – with the full knowledge that it might be the last decision they made.
