Never underestimate the power of one single person to make outstanding things happen, especially when that person is Sandhya Chougule from Satara in the State of Maharashtra, India.
The life of Sandhya Chougle is a life of determination. That determination has made a difference.
“Basically,” she says, “I am a farmer. I had a dream from childhood to develop my jungle, and to motivate others to do so.”
Driven by a deep understanding of the vital role of trees, Sandhya began her plantation activity in 1986. Since then, she has to her credit the planting and care of more than 60,000 trees. While she plants, Sandhya helps to create sensitivity and awareness about nature and the environment in the local population.
