Mithila Wildlife Trust (MWT) works with local and international experts, collaborators, and partners to ensure our conservation efforts are sustainable, and help sustainably develop the local community.
We view the work we do as benefiting not only the environment, but the community as well. Through our ecosystem services we hope to stimulate local job growth and education, and contribute to environmentally conscious and religious tourism.
We focus on educating and empowering the community on:
- Sustainable agriculture
- Sustainable tourism
- Sustainable use of natural resources
Job Training Programmes
We hope to build the skills and knowledge of the current and future generation by helping facilitate Job Training Programmes.
Student Programme:Through the Student Job Training Programme, we equip students with the knowledge to conserve the natural habitats of wildlife and protect Nepal’s green spaces.
Students come to stay at the DPF for 7+ days and participate in job shadowing.
Other students are welcome to stay to study a specific subject. We’ve had students of all levels come to study farm birds, elephant habitats, bird migration, snake rehabilitation and much more!
Community Programme: Job training also exists for community members in areas such as the Tree Nursery, Tree Plantation, Garden Maintenance, and others.
As a conservation and environmental authority in the Terai region we lobby for the co-existence of our natural environment and wildlife with local politicians, community leaders, and change makers.
