An innovation which can alleviate the pain of 8 million underprivileged Rickshaw pullers

There are few things which go unheard or less heard of this is one of those stories. There is a man Dr. Pradip Sarmah from Assam who did something which can change life of 8 million underprivileged rickshaw pullers. How?

Looking at the plight of rickshaw pullers in India he decided to start a bank which will support these people and help them to get their own rickshaw and get a better one too. He founded Rickshaw Bank, an NGO that provides micro-finance to Indian rickshaw drivers.

This is a great innovation and can help so many of the underprivileged than we can probably think of. So next time you feel bad for that poor Rickshaw-wala, just tell him about it.
