Working with the poorest people in our society.

My father Mr. R N Lal Srivastava. He is an honest person whose tenacity in life has inspired me to never give up.

What Is Your Favorite Sound?

The subtle flaps of a humming bird.

What Project would a laptop help you with?

I’m a part of a team headed up by Rajiv Gandhi Mahila Vikas Pariyojana. As a health trainer in our program, my role is to help displaced women with proper nutrition, exercise and general skills.

How Would A Laptop Help You?

I would like to begin teaching the women I serve how to use a computer; but our offices cannot spare a laptop for that purpose. Our resources are stretched thin.

What do you love about this project?

Being able to help those who are at the bottom point in their lives become healthy and self sufficient is rewarding to me beyond measure.

Hindi and English.

Given a choice, would you prefer a Mac or PC?
