50 Success Stories of Rural Women in the Pandemic

Far away from the sensational prime time headlines and the trending hashtags and the reels, the real India lives in its humility and anonymity, facing its everyday challenges and winning its everyday victories. Transformative stories that are changing lives — for better or worse — are unfolding in India every day. Nearly all of them never make it to the mainstream media.

At Gaon Connection, it is our duty to document with honesty and empathy these tales that give us inspiration and courage — wherever we might live, in a city or a village, and whatever we might be pursuing in life. The stories of these 50 women inspire us, provoke us, and tell us far more about rural India than hundreds.
