One of the perks of being an entrepreneur is that you get to meet with the most amazing and interesting people, every single day. I have decided to profile these folks, as and when i get time.
Last week i met with Mr. Narasim Katary, a retired member of the Ontario Municipal Board, who was in Bangalore in association with his organisation “Project Kandwar”. He, with his associates, in Bangalore – Manjunath and Srikanth, two enthusiastic young guys are on a mission to bring self governance to villages in India. Kandwar was also the place where Sir Vishveshwaraiyya went to school, he was born in a neighbouring village of Muddenahalli.
As a pilot they have chosen, Kandwar, a village 2 kms from chikka ballapur, hence the name of the organisation. Ironically, the first project that they undertook was to restore a school in Kandwar, where Sir Vishveshwaraiyya studied and had been closed for some time.
More from their website,
Project Kandwar is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the development of poverty stricken villages into modern communities. Our organizational goal is to mobilize human, material and financial resources, both public and private, from Canada, the world, and India to help the villages of India lift themselves out of poverty. Development will be approached in a comprehensive, collaborative, and concentrated manner.
Project Kandwar’s efforts will focus on creating sustainable jobs that provide adequate income above the poverty line and on improving the standard of living through provision of primary health care, primary education, and modern infrastructure. This is done by empowering the powerless be they women, dalit (formerly known as the Untouchables), landless, or poor.
