Do you want to be part of Vi Agroforestry’s donor service team?
Vi Agroforestry (Vi-skogen) is a Swedish development cooperation organisation, fighting poverty and climate change – together. We do this through sustainable agricultural land management, with agroforestry at the core, and strengthening of small-holder farming families and farmers’ organisations in four countries around Lake Victoria in East Africa. The foundation of Vi Agroforestry’s work is sustainable agriculture and agroforestry – growing trees alongside crops and livestock. It provides increased access to food, access to sustainable energy sources and more income. Sustainable agriculture contributes to the mitigation of climate change and protects against the negative effects of climate change. Since the start in 1983, Vi Agroforestry has contributed to the planting of more than 120 million trees and has supported over 2.3 million people to lift themselves out of poverty.
