The Journey of 50 Million Trees

Challenged by the menace of deforestation and the devastating effects of the climate change resulting in soil erosion, global warming, desertification and soil infertility, Emmanuel seeing himself as a future generation, embarked on reforestation in order to preserve the environment. This passion was what gave birth to the launching of the “Greening Burundi” Project,” with the hope of planting 1 million trees in Burundi.

In the 1st Phase of the #GreeningBurundi project, 40,000 trees were planted and by the 2nd phase, a total of 256,738 trees. This year 2021, we have  commenced with the setting up of the nursery for the 1.5 million trees to be planted with an extension to different regions of Burundi.

The tree species are: Indigenous Trees – 56% | Fruit Trees – 25% | Exotic Trees – 19%.

The goal is alive and Emmanuel Niyoyabikoze and his team are focused on planting 50 million trees in Burundi territories.

In Burundi, finding young people who think to invest in the environmental field is almost a dream. Yet, exceptions are not lacking. Saddened by the drought that plagues his home province and the consequences it causes, a young student from the province Bubanza wants to make his country all green.

This young man keeps on surprising me. He takes initiative, he is creative and he has a vision’. Many people are negative, blame everything on outside things… So, while others wait for things to come to them, he walks his path. He even shows the path. Be sure, life will bring everything to him. It surely will.


Emmanuel Niyoyabikoze est un jeune natif de la province Bubanza. Il a 24 ans et étudie dans la faculté de Sage-Femme à l’Institut National de Sante Publique. Révolté par la désertification qui d’une façon alarmante affectait le sol, freinant ainsi une production agricole suffisante dans sa communauté, Emmanuel a décidé de lancer un projet pour l’environnement.
