Action pour la Protection de l’Environnement et la Promotion des Filières Agricoles (APEFA) received a grant from Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) for the implementation of Community capacity building in the areas of livelihoods and agroforestry under Forest Landscape Restoration in the Mayaga Region Project and intend to use a portion of this fund for the recruitment of a technical team to support in the implementation of this project.

APEFA is a National Non-Government Organization founded by people concerned by environmental degradation and food security in Rwanda. It aims at supporting the country to create resilient agricultural ecosystems and sustainable food security through driving climate-smart practices, implementing sustainable solutions to improve nutrition and food security outcomes, and improving watershed management.

Our strategies seek to build people’s capacities, leadership, and confidence.
