Himcon, Uttarakhand South-West

Overview photo series and articles about constructive work in Uttarakhand South-West

The development and campaign organisation Himcon started several nurseries to advance their afforestation campaigns, to stimulate local agriculture, and to give some income to the villagers. The nurseries also make the organisation independent of funds. When they don't get grants for development projects, there will be income from the nurseries.
