Children collecting spring water
Children collecting spring water. Through WWF funding (Under the TAL joint government and WWF project) and help from the local community (Community Forest Co-ordination Committee), many springs have been found in the area and are now set up to provide water to the local populace. Due to deforestation and soil erosion springs are vital in providing people with fresh, clean water. With more springs being used and trees being planted it is hoped that water levels will begin to rise once again. Lamahai, western Terai, Nepal.
