SIROHI DISTRICT (RAJASTHAN) HAS ACHIEVED GENDER BALANCE

Sirohi district in southern Rajasthan, has restored both gender and green balance by planting trees to mark the birth of a girl child. Working with an NGO, the efforts started back in 2005 when the gender ratio was skewed at 830 girls per 1000 boys. The tone is now very upbeat. Zila Parishads now say: “Trees give us life, and girls infuse the family with life. So in weekly meetings, they discuss how to grow both, girls and trees.”
