London, UK — October 26 2023 Leading SAP© Partner NTT DATA Business Solutions, is proud to announce the planting of 14,050 trees in Rwanda as the Q2 donation under its “One Day One Tree” sustainability initiative which sees the company plant a tree for every Consulting and SAP Managed Services day it delivers each quarter. This latest contribution aims to support smallholder coffee farmers in the Western, Northern, and Eastern Provinces of Rwanda and is a step towards creating a more sustainable and prosperous future for these communities.
The primary goal of this tree-planting project is to provide trees to three communities of smallholder coffee farmers in Rwanda. These trees will be planted and nurtured into healthy coffee and shade trees. This initiative not only leads to an increase in harvest and income for the local farmers but also empowers over 200 coffee farmers to invest in their futures and the futures of their families.
These 14,050 seedlings will be provided as a crucial component of the Kula Fellowship programme, which supports these coffee farmers by offering intensive training in coffee farming best practices and equips farmers with essential farm tools as well as providing necessary inputs to ensure the health of their trees and the growth of their coffee businesses. By doing so, NTT DATA Business Solutions and Kula are working hand in hand to enhance the livelihoods of these smallholder farmers and boost the local coffee industry.
“We are proud that the collaborative work we undertake with our customers not only drives business success but also contributes to planting more trees. This donation is another milestone in our ongoing commitment to sustainable environmental practices and community support,” said Andy Steer, Vice President, Chief Technology Officer, and Chair of the Sustainability Board at NTT DATA Business Solutions UK&I.
With this latest contribution, NTT DATA Business Solutions has now planted over 86,000 trees through the ‘One Day One Tree’ initiative.
