ABOUT HESCO



Himalayan Environmental Studies and Conservation Organization (HESCO) was formed in 1979 by a group of people, who felt strongly over the rapid deterioration of the Himalayas. The group was formally registered under the firms and societies Registration Act (1960) in 1983 and under FCRA in the year 1991 to ease the formalities required by many associating agencies. HESCO have been applying knowledge of the environmental sciences and simple technologies to bring consistent development to the rural villages of the Himalayas. Their innovative and ecologically-sound solutions so far, have yielded outstanding results in their target regions, and have brought them national recognition, and recently international attention for their contributions to rural mountain development considering the pioneering, using pro community Science and Technology as a tool.


Their innovative and ecologically-sound solutions so far, have yielded outstanding results in their target regions, and have brought them national recognition, and recently international attention for their contributions to rural mountain development considering the pioneering, using pro community Science and Technology as a tool. HESCO serving the rural villages of the Himalayas are demonstrating a viable and extremely successful model for rural development in India. Their positive outcomes are, no doubt, due in part to their adherence to the group’s core philosophy which could serve as inspiration to us all:

  • Serve in the spirit of dedicated volunteerism
  • Acknowledge and develop the natural talents of the community.
  • Encourage self-sufficient and simple solutions to the practical problems.
  • Promote the practice of “shridan”: that every village which is helped with development, will in turn, adopt and help to another village.
  • Promote sustainable development with a priority on environmental protection and economic independence.
  • Using pro community Science and Technology as a tool.
