Olonkar Project & Changemaker Aparajita Jana

How do you encourage the newer generation of rural women to join hands with their elders in reviving local artisanal food products? Take a look at how a local girl becomes a change maker and gets inspired to perfect a lost art of making Gohona Bori. She acknowledges she is the only one in her cohort of friends who is pursuing this but hopes to inspire others to join in. During the first season, she manages to lead a team of ten elder women, taking care of the entire process from preparation to drying and packing of the fragile food-art product. This is her story.
