ASMAT INDIA: TIME TO RISE

"There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world and that is an idea whose time has come."
 

-Victor Hugo

 

The goal of Asmat India is two-fold:

 

● To connect youth in urban areas to rural India and shape them to be thought leaders in the
development space in India - through interactions with various people and stakeholders at the
grassroots level and an immersive experience via living and working in villages.
●To contribute to the socio-economic and holistic development of rural India through changing social
norms and increased awareness in the areas of governance, gender, and education.


We are based in New Delhi. After working in Soda village in Rajasthan for 3 years, we shifted to working in Ahmadpur Darewala village in Haryana in 2017. Read more about the story of how we came along here!
