Protect the Indian rainforest in the Khasi Hills
The Khasi Hills in India are known for the unique biodiversity. However, the area is under great pressure. Large areas of land are being deforested to produce coal and agricultural land. The local Khasi people have asked the NGO WeForest for help in restoring these special forests. Will you help save this Indian rainforest?
The importance of the Khasi Hills
The Khasi tribes depend on the rainforest for food, firewood, medicine, shelter and spiritual traditions. As the area continues to be devastated, help is needed to restore forests and preserve biodiversity.
WeForest helps the population to work with more sustainable agricultural techniques. In this way, the Khasi people learn to live independently from the nature reserve and further deforestation is prevented. In addition, they learn to prepare food on stoves without firewood. This saves logging and this cleaner cooking method is also better for their health.
