Helping to raise money to protect the trees EHN & WCN are planting in Nepal in order to repopulate the local forests.

Education & Health Nepal was first created to provide low cost volunteering placements in Nepal with an aim to create a foundation from which we could launch special projects that really make a difference in the poorer communities of Nepal. One of these projects is the reforestation of between 4h & 5h of land in the Southern part of Nepal known as the Terai. EHN is working closely with Wildlife Conservation Nepal (one of the biggest conservation NGO`s) to help repopulate the local forests. The target is to rasie £2,500 for the first tree planting of 2015 which will go towards the cost of planting as well as protecting the trees until they are established. 

This is because over the last few decades Nepal has seen a massive amount of deforestation resulting from landslides population growth and the introducation of the community forests which were set up to protect the National parks. So in order to achieve this WCN have set up nurseries to grow the native trees and have identified the areas where this is needed. 

Because the local people are not allowed to gather firewood from the national parks the community forests where the reforestation will take place have provided a valuable resource for the locals who use them for animal feed, building, cooking and a host of other uses. Which creates a balance between the protecion of wildlife & the local communities. In other areas targetted the trees will provide protection from landslides in the monsoon season as the tree roots play a big part in holding the soil on the valley sides or the banks on a river where local communities have set up home. 

This is a long term project that we hope will plant in the region of 5,000,000 trees over the coming years.
