The main objective of the environmental programme is twofold. Firstly, our projects aim to raise awareness among villagers of the impact of their actions on the environment and second, to inform villagers how a healthy environment is closely linked to the general health of the villagers.
Key achievements of this programme have been different awareness raising and teaching camps for the villagers in the rural Lalitpur district. Also, SHEWD held a conference with 30 participants of three Village Development Committees on the problem of safe rubbish disposal and encouraged habitants to clean unhealthy sites and households to reuse, recycle, and reduce refuse. SHEWD organized also an Environment Day, where a group of 200 students and 130 members of various local organizations passed through 3 different villages raising awareness of the need to combat deforestation and tackle pollution and carbon dioxide emissions.
As a result of our projects, the villages are now significantly cleaner and both sewage and rubbish disposals have improved and health risks have diminished.
