An inclusive project

The Khasi Hills project is an inclusive project and actively engages women and youth, two groups who risk being left out.

Economic power isn’t political power

As the Khasi is one of the world’s few matrilineal societies, women have the economic power and are in charge of resources and money. However, political power is solely for men which is why this project encourages women to participate in local parliament meetings. As such, participating villages have a team of community volunteers of which one-third of the members has to be female.

Annual training

Women are not the only population group that is actively engaged. Local youth can attend annual training sessions for which they receive a per diem compensation. All training focuses on restoration and subjects range from the collection of rainfall data to silviculture to plot monitoring and silviculture.
