Whilst in Terra Madre I met a remarkable woman from India , Kudarti Mitra Pravasan Kendra.
I attended the Indian regional meeting and she gave a presentation on the organisation she works with called SEWA. The organisation is a network that assists women to find employment and to become self-reliant. They have helped approximately 1.5 million women thus far.
I found her story, great work and achievements inspiring and enlightening. She is a true testament to what one can achieve by simply having a go and in the process changing many peoples lives.
