Tharu Sustainability Project

Chitwan, Nepal

Help support the indigenous people of the remote rainforest in Chitwan to be sustainable.

Tribal Trust’s Contribution
Identified a grassroots sustainable project that would help the once nomadic tribe support themselves in a confined area. Partnered with Heifers International to send a flock of goats that could survive on the jungle to the Tharu community.

These original hunter-gatherer people, who are now displaced and disenfranchised, have another means to provide food for themselves. Contributed to international awareness that unmarried Tharu women are forced into prostitution and slavery.
