Farmer Activist to Launch an Organic Food Brand

Meet Kavita Kaushik. Not your typical, young, technology startup, creating some world changing product.
60-year old Kavita, a social activist and post graduate of the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, has transformed the lives of dacoits in the Chambal valley of India. Her work with dacoits has been recognised in the United States of America, where she received the Jampolsky Award in 2000. Activism and helping disadvantaged people is so deeply ingrained in Kavita, that even with the US$7,000 award money she bought a truckload of goats for the transformed dacoits to become goat herders.
