About the project                           

Deforestation in Nyagatare District is a serious environmental challenge that is mainly attributed to excessive dependence and use of firewood as the main source of fuel. The collection of firewood is traditionally carried out by women and girls which in turn exposes them to increased workload as well as physical and sexual violence. But also, unemployed male youth contribute to deforestation through collecting firewood for selling. Save Generations Organization funded by Rwanda Green Fund, FONERWA  has been awarded to implement a project entitled ‘’Empowerment of women and youth to climate change resilience and environmental protection in Nyagatare district’’ which aims to empower the women and youth for climate change resilience and environment conservation through biomass replacement and wastes management by providing cooking stoves and briquettes to reduce deforestation, gender-based violence and create green jobs to youths in 5 sectors of Nyagatare District ( Rwimiyaga, Nyagatare, Tabagwe, Mimuri and karangazi sector).
