Tree-Planting Matters


Reforestation is the leading climate change solution because it’s the only method proven to remove carbon from our atmosphere.

Every Instagram post with #myveneka plants a tree with reforestation programs that employ, educate and empower people.

Where We Plant


The Gishwati-Mukura forests of Rwanda once spanned 253,000 hectares and have been cut down to just 3,558. We support a women’s cooperative, led by a local female farmer, that gives reforestation training to improve livelihoods.


Our reforestation partner in India focuses on planting fruit tress that provide food security and income to local farmers and community organizations, including orphanages, aged care homes and schools. Trees are also planted to restore the devastating damage done by Cyclone Fani.
