Sushma Gonde | Uttar Pradesh Fellow
From being brought up in a small farming village to going on to pursue her Masters in Social Work, Sushma Gonde has come a long way in making her life more meaningful. She considers her father to be a major inspiration in her life and her current passion for social change is a direct result of the work her father did. When she was staying in her village, she bore witness to the social challenges that the women face on a daily basis. Incidentally, it was during her masters that she got to know about Sukhibhava and the fellowship programme that was being offered. She immediately decided to apply for it and make use of the platform to continue her working in and for the communities.
