In celebration of women.

In much of the world, women are seen as inferior to men, and many parents hope for the birth of a son, not a daughter.

Men are titans of business and are world leaders, as they dominate the history books.

Women meanwhile earn much less money than men, are seldom given equal opportunities, and face domestic violence, sexual harassment and rape.

But in the village of Piplantri, in India, women are celebrated for being the marvelous people they are.

(Story continues from "Read More")

Whenever a girl is born, to celebrate her life, the village plants 111 trees in her honor.

In addition, money is set aside for her future education, and her family pledges to take care of those saplings.

To date 350,000 saplings have been planted for this and for other programs as the village grows more beautiful with the birth of these baby girls, and the planting of these baby trees.

These trees are helping to restore the water table, birds and animals are returning and the air is becoming cleaner and more breathable.

How did all this happen? It began with one man.

In 2006, village leader Shyam Sundar Paliwal was mourning the loss of his beloved daughter and he decided the best way to honor her was for the village to celebrate its women.

The 111 is actually 1+1+1, representing the baby girl, her mother and her father.

Worldwide, gender and environmental issues are gaining strong support. The village of Piplantri has shown us a wonderful way to address both.

What this village is doing is commendable and sustainable and can be replicated anywhere.
