Project Manager, Ecotourism, Odisha Project Coordinator, Internship Coordinator
Susmita, an Azim Premji University graduate, joined SLI in June 2019 and has been working diligently as the project manager for our sustainable tourism project with the Tamil Nadu Rural Livelihood Mission (TNRLM). During her first few months at SLI, Susmita has brought her background in gender and livelihood studies, which she has used to help strengthen our understanding of gender and the impact we have with our participants. Her work at SLI has so far led her to travel across the state to assess potential tourism sites and develop a programme framework that will help establish a sustainable tourism industry in these areas through trainings held at SLI. She is from
Calcutta and is taking this opportunity to explore women's roles in rural livelihoods.
