Where We Work
Nepal is one of the least developed countries in the world. Rural communities in Nepal depend on their natural environment for food, shelter, and income. When the environment is damaged and trees are cut down, those experiencing poverty are the first to feel the negative effects.
Eden is working to support poverty alleviation and environmental restoration across Nepal with more than 12 million trees already planted. Starting in 2015, Eden has been working in 3 distinct regions across the country, including a partnership with Chitwan National Park, a World Heritage Site in Nepal. By partnering with the National Park system, Eden helps protect and create a reforested zone vital to protecting animal habitat.
