Sustainable living is not something that exists only in the urban dictionary. The Digital Didi program has allowed us to look at this way of living in a rural and conservative set up.
From DEF’s work being recognised in the G20 summit to DEF’s foot soldiers getting nominated to provide more services in an official capacity, the journey in 2022 has witnessed many milestones. With the new year beginning, new programs like Aspen and Smahita have taken up the baton to work towards the vision of eradicating information poverty and providing social protection.
This edition brings the elements of these programs, along with the stories that are stepping into novel realms of creating change in the society. Some of the stories also reflect the new shifts in the mindset of people who have been directly or indirectly reached through various programs. These testimonials are a result of relentless and persistent efforts of the team on the ground who have been empathetically and passionately driving these programs, most often taking them to new directions.
