The monsoon season (July/August) is the best time for building the (cement) rainwater harvesting tanks and for doing plantation work on the mountain slopes. Therefore, at present preparations are in full swing. HIMCON has selected 10 persons who will get a water tank (5000 litre) near their house.
The experienced Mr. Balbir Singh Rana has started working with his team to prepare the iron structures for these tanks. The beneficiaries will help them in all practical ways to get the work done. In HIMCON’s plant nursery, small fodder/fruit trees (Citrus, Mulberry and Guriyal) are prepared for being planted by women groups in the Kimsar region during the monsoon. HIMALAYA RESOURCES still needs around 1000 euro to support the full Kimsar-project.
