The youth of Kigali City planted 15,000 trees in various locations during a Special Community Work event called ‘Umuganda’, which brought them together for the ‘OneShotOneTree’ campaign. 

On the morning of January 20, the youth of Kigali City gathered for the ‘Umuganda’ event as part of the Kigali Youth Festival, which aimed to bring them together to discuss government policies and civic engagement.

These young people were accompanied by various officials, including those from the Ministry of Youth and Arts, the City of Kigali, security agencies, and other partners. The youth planted 5,000 trees on the outskirts of the Nyarutarama Running Track to contribute to a clean and green Kigali.

Urujeni Martin, the Vice Mayor of Kigali City in Charge of Socio-Economic Affairs, thanked the various partners involved in the campaign, including Skol Brewery Rwanda and Orion Basketball Club, for donating trees. 

Martin also expressed the Government of Rwanda’s support for all youth development programs, encouraging the youth to continue to cooperate with the Government and to effectively utilize the opportunities available to them.

On October 28, 2023, the Government of Rwanda, in collaboration with the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Local Government, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and other partners, launched the 2023/24 national tree-planting season with a goal of increasing and maintaining forest cover with about 63 million seedlings, according to the Rwanda Forestry Authority.
