Dholpur’s journey along with Manjari Foundation holds a very prominent role in my life because this is the place, where I have developed myself as a better development professional. I have learnt many things of my life and profession here from the core team of Manjari foundation that consists of beautiful villages, roads, people and the most significantly those groups which are working together for each other’s interest selflessly. Manjari Is that family where a child grew and I will always cherish my childhood because it was beautiful.

I had a great learning experience with Manjari Foundation. It works on the ground realities. It is challenging but gives happiness. I thank Foundation for providing me such a great exposure.

Interning with Manjari Foundation and working at the grass-root level changed a lot of my perceptions about the realities which exists at the village level and made me more aware of the needs of the local community which, I believe, will help me look at the problems at a deeper level before I shoot-out solutions in a patriarchal manner. Time spent on the field made me more sensitive to issues which are ploughing the rural economy and I certainly feel more equipped to handling them with greater responsibility.
