We care for Darjeeling - Our WWF India Cooperation

Reforestation in Darjeeling - Our program: "Save the Environment and Regenerate Vital Employment" (Project SERVE)

 

Durable quality depends on sustainable development. To reverse the soil erosion on the steep slopes of Darjeeling, trees must be replanted in strategic locations. In 1992, Teekampagne initiated a project to improve the area’s natural environment, "Save the Environment and Regenerate Vital Employment" (Project SERVE).


Tea Campaign Australia - WWF India CooperationFunded solely by the Tea Campaign Germany (Teekampagne), the project is implemented by the WWF-India. Our cooperation with the WWF, as well as our financial support for SERVE, is intended as a long-term commitment. Meet the local team.

SERVE is also dedicated to improving the socio-economic conditions of the inhabitants of Darjeeling Hill. It has carved a niche among the conservation oriented non-governmental organisations in the region, and much has been accomplished. Today, an area of 210 hectares has been reforested and 22 tree nurseries have been established with 260.000 seedlings were grown in the last year alone.


Tea Campaign Australia - WWF India CooperationOur model village, Tinchulay, is an example of how ecological awareness and entrepreneurship can work together. Its ecological projects (such as establishing tree nurseries and producing bio-fertiliser) have flourished, and it has established a successful business in ecotourism.

Environmental education and awareness programs are bearing fruit. 13 schools are working closely with our WWF project. Their activities include nature treks, bird watching, and various exhibitions and workshops. Research activities range from the recycling of plastics to the conservation of endangered bird species. Workshops on medicinal plants teach the local population how to use these natural resources.

Collecting rainwater enables a small water power plant to produce energy for 10 households in a remote area of Darjeeling.

The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, a fascinating piece of engineering and a major tourist attraction, stops at Batasia Loop, where SERVE has laid out an eco garden which provides information about organic farming and the regional flora.

In the near future, 300 hectares of land will be reforested in Senchal, the area which provides the town of Darjeeling with water.

The Tea Campaign is a proven catalyst and initiator of sustained development in the region of Darjeeling. The amazing results of this project have encouraged officials in Darjeeling to collaborate with SERVE on further projects.
