Surya Kanti
Surya Kanti, a tribal woman from Biraguda village, Odisha, has become a role model for the entire community. Married at a young age, Surya Kanti was among the few women from her village who had completed their primary education and was motivated to bring about a change in her environment. It was during one of the workshops organized by CARE India’s Pathways team, when Surya Kanti realized the importance of joining a Self-Help Group (SHG). Though her in-laws were initially against her going out of the house, she convinced them. She also motivated 14 other women to join. Being part of the SHG, she started saving, implemented new agricultural practices, and even built a kitchen garden to support her family.
