The Ladies Wing of IMC Chamber of Commerce and Industry along with the Bajaj Electricals conferred the 29th IMC Ladies’ Wing Jankidevi Bajaj Puraskar 2022 on Manisha Ghule, Executive Director of Navchetana Sarvangin Vikas Kendra, Aurangabad, at their flagship event in Mumbai.
Manisha Ghule was recognised for her contribution to rural entrepreneurship. She has introduced new occupations and career paths in secluded Indian villages, empowering the most marginalised and excluded rural women to earn money with dignity and reshaping their communities’, agricultural economy, and social structures. These villages are impacted by climate change, migration, declining agriculture, and joblessness. Manisha is shaping a new and sustainable employment model for rural women in these communities, one that will enable them to contribute to economic progress and assure social equity.
Navchetana Sarvagin Vikas Kendra is a grassroots-level social change organisation working with marginalised and backward communities of Beed district of Maharashtra such as Dalits, nomadic tribes, de-notified tribes, landless labourers, small and marginalised farmers, women, children, handicapped, underprivileged, migrant sugarcane cutting communities and those affected by large-scale disasters.
The IMC Ladies Wing Jankidevi Bajaj Puraskar is an initiative that recognises, promotes, supports and honours women entrepreneurs working towards improving living conditions in rural India. The award is named after Jankidevi Bajaj, for all her work in the area of rural development.
