Bjelkeman's travel notes

Travels with the cloud in my pocket.

Heroes – Sunita Nadhamuni

Sunita Nadhamuni at the old Arghyam offices in 2008, at a meeting with Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia

Sunita Nadhamuni is the CEO of Arghyam. Sunita is a very interesting woman. She is without doubt one of the most dynamic, intelligent and humble people I know. Sunita has a background from information technology and has moved over into water and sanitation only recently.

Argyham has, under Sunita’s direction, moved from being a completely new NGO to being a real powerhouse at the national level in the world’s most populous democracy. After only 4 years they are already called in at minister level to help “sort things out”.

Today I had the privilege to compare notes with Sunita and discuss the progress of our respective organisations over lunch.
