Ukhrul District is a hilly region. Lack of national or multinational investment and inadequate governance has badly affected development in the district. Burning & slashing of forest for shifting cultivation, illegal hunting, timber cutting are common. Partner El Shaddai Resource Centre (ESRC) works with local churches and in villages to train and encourage villagers to develop organic farming in order to protect the land and increase farmers’ income, develop energy efficient stoves that to reduce the use of firewood and charcoal and help to build reservoirs to collect rain water.

Pray for India ESRC environmental sustainability project:

  • 160 fuel-efficient firewood burners have been made. Pray that other villagers will replicate and use this new method;
  • 60% of Lunghar villagers have adopted organic farming. Pray for the sales of organic products;
  • Pray for good local governance and for better livelihood of HIV/ADIS affected farmers’ families.
