Grateful Changemakers: TreeSisters

-by the Gratefulness Team

TreeSisters invites everyone to be in a relationship of radical generosity with the Earth and to assume leadership in ways that inspire others to do the same.

Here in our feature “Grateful Changemakers”, we celebrate programs and projects that serve as beacons of gratefulness. These efforts elevate the values of grateful living and illuminate their potential to transform both individuals and communities. Join us in appreciating the inspiring and catalyzing contribution these Changemakers offer to shaping a more grateful world.

TreeSisters envisions a world in which it is normal for everyone to protect and restore themselves and their world. The non-profit’s global network of women funds the acceleration of tropical reforestation as an expression of collective planetary care, and in doing so elicits shared responsibility for restoration at the grassroots level. As of September 2019, TreeSisters has funded over six million trees across its projects in Kenya, Madagascar, Brazil, Cameroon, Nepal, and India.

Empowering women to step into their feminine Nature-based leadership, TreeSisters supports humanity’s identity shift from a consumer species to a restorer species. The organization’s approach focuses on the creation of resources and experiences that balance inner and outer, spiritual and practical, and behavioral and ecological pathways towards that shift. Founder Clare Dubois shares more about how TreeSisters engages, nourishes, inspires, and activates women through their unique gifts and generosity for the benefit of themselves, each other, and the forests that we love and need.
