2 DAYS TO GO! Devi Awards Kolkata!
Our next award winner to be featured in the Devi Awards countdown series is Temsutula Imsong!
Nagaland-born Temsutula Imsong, the co-founder of the Sakaar Sewa Samiti, made Varanasi her base for a mission to clean India in 2013. Starting off with Prabhu Ghat, the filthiest of the 84 ghats in Varanasi, the 36-year-old activist got a big boost with PM Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan in 2014. Imsong and her team not only turned the ghat into a pristine one but also made it a platform for constructive debate and discussion. Creating awareness about health and sanitation and mobilising community members, Imsong is now working on home-composting initiatives.
The Devi Awards will be held for the first time in Kolkata on 31st August at the ITC Royal Bengal.
