What We Do

Climate change, other environmental threats, population growth and migration are putting disproportionate pressure on livelihoods in rural areas where poverty is already entrenched. Challenging as this may be, sound management of natural resources and ecosystems need to go hand in hand with efforts to reduce poverty. CIRHEP works with farmers promoting organic agriculture and bio-dynamic inputs in their watershed areas, promoting a sense of responsibility through environmental education, working for women empowerment, working with adolescent girls and children as part of an integrated community development approach with an intention to reduce poverty, improve livelihood and access to enough quality food for the rural to lead active and healthy lives.
