This guy planted a forest with his bare hands!
Jadev Payeng, the forest man of India, noticed that the environment around him was changing.
Trees were dying, the river was flooding, animals were fleeing, and the land was disappearing. But instead of sitting back, watching it happen, he actually did something about it and created a huge change.
Today, the forest he started planting over 40 years ago is bigger than New York’s central park!
Jadev became a role model in his home country, we hope his story will inspire you as it did us. Because it’s up to each and every one of us to make a difference.
