Nileema Mishra 
is an activist engaged in rural development in Maharashtra, India. She is one of the youngest recipients of the Magsaysay Award (dubbed as the Nobel Prize of Asia). She donated her Magsaysay award money, received in 2011,to Bhagini Nivedita Gramin Vigyan Niketan (BNGVN) to provide micro-finance to help poor women. In recognition of her work for rural development she was awarded Padmashree by the Government of India in 2013. Micro-financing coupled with logistical support provided to farmers, entrepreneurs and women’s Self Help Groups encourages savings, imparts skills for alternate livelihood, and helps build sanitation systems. Nileema’s initiative has eliminated farmer suicides and empowered rural women in multiple villages in many districts to be proud earning members of their families.

 

Melinda Kramer co-directs WEA's world-wide work around issues of clean water, food security, climate change, and land protection through strategic investments in grassroots women's leadership. WEA works to build solutions to global environmental challenges by uplifting the  leadership of women. WEA’s work in India includes GREEN Foundation, RUPANTAR in Chhattisgarh, Rural Women Upliftment Society(RWUS) in Manipur, People’s Action for Development (PAD) in Assam, Bindrai Institute of Research and Action’s (BIRSA) in Jharkhand and Gorakhpur Environmental Action Group in UP. Rucha Chitnis, the South Asia Program Director of WEA will join Melinda in receiving the award.
