Smokeless Chulha to help women in Rural Gujarat

Meet Diksha Mishra, who chose to the path of helping remote and nondescript tribal villages instead of joining any big organization.

She has dedicated herself in installing smokeless chulhas in the villages which are helping the health of women and are also giving them an alternate source of income.

After her post-graduation, Diksha could have joined any big organization. But she chose to go to a remote and nondescript tribal village in Gujarat to solve the plight of the women there.

She has effectively installed smokeless chulhas in the village which are not only improving the women’s health but also giving them an alternate source of income.


She said laughingly that this has been her journey of being Diskha to becoming ‘Daksa Ben’. Diksha came to Dang, a remote village in Gujarat about eight months ago and today she became a very important part in the lives of the villagers.

After a Post-Graduation in Human Rights with a specialization in Women Rights, Diksha knew she wanted to do something in the field of women empowerment. She got a chance to be in the part of the SBI Youth for India Fellowship as she explored a career in the social sector and then as a blogger.

She said that this was a great opportunity for her. She felt inside her that she wanted to do something for the betterment of women.

So, when she found the location, she focused all her energy to come up with an idea that could lead to a holistic development of the women in Dang.
