While urban areas often enjoy a disproportionate abundance of resources, the lack of basic amenities like footwear, clothing and sanitation is a common feature in several parts of rural India. Stepping up to bridge this divide are India's startups who doing all kinds of things -- right from bringing low-cost, refurbished computers to under-served areas to distributing footwear to children in villages. On this episode, we talk to one of India's leading social entrepreneurs, the Magsaysay award-winning founder of Goonj, Anshu Gupta, about what it takes to bring about real social change. We also meet the founders of other social enterprises to learn about their journeys.
