Appeal for increasing partnership
We appeal to all the lovers of the Himalayas, the communities living there, people living outside and those who believe in the urgency of arresting the degradation of these sacred mountains. If the vision for restoring the Himalayas to their pristine glory is to turn to reality and the objectives envisaged in this report realised, every-one must lend a hand by way of voluntary work, or mobilisation of resources or both.
It is vital that the Himalayas be preserved, not only for the present and future generations of Indians but for mankind as a whole.
There are innumerable projects and programmes which need your support. All friends of the Himalayas interested in responding to the appeal are requested to contact:
