Reinventing the Rickshaw to Drive Social Impact

ABOUT ME

PRADIP KUMAR SARMAH

Director of CRD & An Ashoka Fellow

I was elected as an Ashoka Fellow in 2001 for my pioneering work as a veterinarian in Assam. However, my life has changed dramatically in 2002 when i had a conversation with a rickshaw puller while riding a rickshaw. The Puller’s answers to my questions intrigued me, leading me to engage in a much grander study about the lives of rickshaw pullers. What i found deeply: The vast majority of India’s estimated 8 million rickshaw pullers don’t own their own rickshaws, rather, they are caught in a cycle of debt and looked down upon by society. They do not have health or accident insurance.
