Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2013
This description of Sanjeev Kumar's work was prepared when Sanjeev Kumar was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2013.
Sanjeev Kumar is socially and economically empowering women from the poorest communities in the mountain and desert regions of India through the financially viable but often overlooked practice of small livestock husbandry. Sanjeev makes women the key drivers of the entire cycle of small livestock husbandry, from rearing to medical care, to sale at market, and is creating a cadre of skilled and economically independent women respected by their communities.
