Restoring the Cloud Forests of India

The forest restoration activities in the Khasi Hills in northeast India are expanding: WeForest is adding another 500 hectares (over 1200 acres) of degraded forest to its intervention site, bringing the total area of restored forest to 1500 hectares or 3700 acres. Your donation and the support of many others made this possible. Bringing back the forests to the Khasi Hills will bring back life to the tribal communities who depend on the forests for their livelihood. One of the local musicians, Mr. Pynshailang Lyngdoh, sings about the forests to educate youth about importance of the cloud forests of the Khasi Hills. You can read more about him in the attached planting update.

Over the last months we started distributing gas cookers and electric rice cookers. Simple kitchen equipment like this will help the local people to make the transition from firewood to more energy efficient ways of cooking. We expect that the demand for firewood will reduce by half when families cook with gas cookers and electric rice cookers. Please, have a look at the planting update for more information.

On behalf of the people of the Khasi Hills and the WeForest team I would like to thank you for your continued support of our work in India.
