Thank you Kalawati Devi Rawat for your leadership and courage

Not only did  Kalawati Devi Rawat  bring electricity to her community - literally by carrying abandoned poles and wires to her village - but she and the women of the Mahila Mangal Dal (Women Welfare Group) battled alcoholism in her village by shutting down illegal breweries and prevented logging companies from decimating nearby forest by organising her fellow villages to hug the trees when the men with chainsaws approached.
