According to recent statistics, India is home to the largest number of poor people after Nigeria. These numbers shocked Akansha Hazari who founded m.Paani to play a part.
The country is on a precipice of change and we can push it in the right direction. Ordinary, hard-working citizens like us can uplift the poor and lower middle class too. Akansha Hazari took a simple idea of community building and created something spectacular. A student of Cambridge and Princeton, Akansha has always been an activist. Her heart and soul lay in supporting the needy. But she knew just donating money wasn’t the answer. Giving money may solve a problem once but giving the poor the right education can solve the problem forever. It gives them the chance to do more than just survive. Ask any poor Indian, what does he need? The answer will be electricity, water or education. They want to improve their quality of life and live respectfully. Akansha Hazari felt that these things could be provided to them by other citizens.
