  Why We Are
The villagers living on the periphery of forests normally collect fodder, fuel wood and wooden poles for household use and construction of homesteads. As per the findings of Tata Energy Research Institute (TERI), fuel wood collection ranges from 2 kg per household to 30 kg per household per day. At least 70% of the fodder requirement comes directly from the forests. They also collect poles for construction of their homes. On an average a household extracts around 6-10 poles from the forest in a period of three years.           more...
