Joe Madiath helps the indigenous people in India

Thirty years ago, social entrepreneur Joe Madiath founded the organisation Gram Vikas in Orissa, one of the poorest states in India, to help the indigenous people known as the Adivasi.


One of its main goals is to provide the Adivasi with clean drinking water, as well as electricity. Gram Vikas helps the 700 villagers organise, finance and maintain these utilities. For his efforts Joe Madiath was named a Social Entrepreneur by the Schwab Foundation.
