Project Greenhands was Born

 

ProjectGreenHands-Woman-with-TreeWhat started as a path out of grieving became a mission to bring the population of Tamil Nadu (68M) together around the reforestation of their entire state to try to reverse extreme desertification.

To do this, they had to tend the demoralized and defeated villages whose wells had dried up and who's lands were dead. They created a process of rehabilitating people, before they could then ask those people to rehabilitate their lands with trees. They did it with yoga, meditation and volley ball - games that became the village Olympics, and that started a planting revolution that has now seen the planting of well over 28 million trees across the state.
