Every contribution will help farmers restore Nagaland's forest cover.
Without the roots of trees holding the soil together, the earth can only soak up a certain amount of water before it gives way. Farmers were severely hit when the flash floods washed away their fields and their source of income. Having suffered the effects of deforestation - for which they are also responsible as they cut trees to increase their land use - it's important to educate them to restore their farming practice in a sustainable manner.WHY NAGALAND
Deforestation and logging for agricultural purposes is predominant in Nagaland. Due to these practices, acres of land are destroyed and increasing numbers of landslides and flash floods are witnessed annually. In villages where EA work, farmers lost their terraced fields and landslides destroyed paddy fields and jhum lands, creating food insecurity. It’s crucial for local people to take measures to protect themselves against natural calamities.THE PLAN
Entrepreneurs Associates project, Trees for Wealth aims to create a link between environmental concerns and livelihood security. The funds raised will be used to purchase and distribute fruit bearing tree saplings to 10,000 farmers in 200 villages. EA will teach them sustainable farming practices, conduct business skill trainings, provide market linkage and educate them on how trees protect the planet, their lands and livelihoods.
