Network for Youth Development and Healthy Environment
NYDHEE strives to create a society where the people believe in collective participation, strengthening the process of democratic governance. With adequate community-based facilitation, capacity building, and education, individuals can take ownership of local resources, supplement traditional livelihood methods, and adapt to newer, innovative approaches for longevity and sustainability. NYDHEE believes that appropriate and multi-lateral development can only be achieved through increased participation of women and youth.

Our current project MSED is being implemented in BANGRIPOSI Block of Mayurbhanj District . Most tribal people are located there and in adjacent areas, including the SIMILIPAL BIOSPHERE who depend on nearby forests for fuel wood. The villages have around 425 households who are native to the place and belong to the Santal community. The villagers are poor and have no alternate source of energy for cooking. Almost all the households depend on forests for their daily fuel wood needs. Each and every day, women from each household enter the forest to collect fuel wood, which is not legally permitted by law and sanctuary authorities. There is always conflict between forest department officials and women folk. Apart from this there are casualties due to elephant attacks during fuel wood collection. There is acute shortage of fuel wood due to restrictions and women folk are unable to meet their fuel wood needs. It is thought that to reduce fuel wood consumption by introduction of fuel efficient devices like fuel efficient-cum-smoke less cooking stove (chulla). This will reduce fuel wood needs, improve livelihoods, and reduce drudgery in the collection of fuel wood for kitchens. Moreover it is expected the fuel wood collected from revenue land and own land will be sufficient for villagers after the introduction of the chulla.
NYDHEE would like to meet the needs of the communities it serves with newer technology, implementation practices, and knowledge transfer of programs through this partnership.
