This woman entrepreneur breathed life into a ghost village by starting a cottage industry for plantable stationery
Women entrepreneurs are on a rise.
A new article on how a 28-year-old social entrepreneur is working to uplift the rural villages and inspiring youth to promote sustainable living. She is the founder of Evolve Foundation and KiWi Kisan Window and initiated various projects like Kahaani, Dehradun Drum circle, plantable stationery, etc.
“The idea was to have a very holistic approach. We did not want to focus on a single cause like education for the girl child. This is because even when you educate a girl child, when she returns home, she is beaten up, cannot express herself to the parents, and they do not accept her as educated. Hence, we thought that just being on one side of the beam balance will not help.”
