My name is Ved Prakash Sharma and I work with Gramonnati Trust as Co-founder and CEO. I am better known as VP to my friends. Travel, music and technology are my passions.
I am committed to rural transformation and realise that unless we tap the talent amongst the youth in rural areas and develop them as grassroots leaders, sustainable change will not happen. If migration from rural to urban areas is to be stopped and then finally reversed, there is a need to create entrepreneurs locally within rural communities.
Nothing democratises wealth better than micro-entrepreneurship. This is the belief with which we have started our journey to develop 10,000 rural entrepreneurs in next five years.
Investing INR 100,000 in an individual to transform her/him into an entrepreneur is, in my opinion, a very fruitful and smart investment. Each rural entrepreneur so developed becomes a role model to many others. Over a period of time, through their micro-enterprises, they will become job-creators in their communities and possibly, help develop many more entrepreneurs locally.
Our villages are the bedrock of our nation and a stronger rural community is what will make us a nation to contend with, over the next few decades. I strongly believe that we can nurture young rural boys and girls to be engines of hope and transformation in their communities.
Please support my campaign.
