Akbar Khan is a farmer in Jodhpur (Kaman), a tiny little village in the Mewat, Rajasthan. He cares very much about education and has managed to educate his children in an extraordinary way – from the village to university back to the village. A completely different approach from what other farmers in the villages do. Usually they keep their kids at home and let them work in the fields … Akbar Khan is a true role model.
I am really looking forward to cooperate more with him and his village – especially on girl’s education.
My friend Yogesh Sen (16 years old, from Khajuraho) translated the interview. Thanks to both of them.
