The Summit, which is themed around ‘Leveraging CSR to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Maharashtra is being organised by India CSR Network and aims to put forth the CSR agenda for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for Maharashtra state.
Mayank started his career as an International urban planner. He has planted 2.5 crore fruit trees in the last three and half years in the poorest areas of the country viz Marathwada, MP, and Palghar benefitting over 15,000 farmer families and the environment at large.
In 2011, he was part of the leadership of India against Corruption (IAC) movement and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). In 2015, he quit politics and dedicated his life to Nation Building. He chose 106 villages with the highest suicides, droughts, and poverty villages in Marathwada, Maharashtra.
He has created a proof-of-concept model with 360° village development, water harvesting, and multiplying farmer incomes by over 20 times, by changing cropping patterns, training, and cluster plantation.
Through his Rural Economic Transformation model with Global Parli, he believes that India can be transformed by multiplying farmer incomes. Recently, he also began Global Kachchh, a Jal Andolan which is a water management project to solve the water scarcity crisis in the Kachchh district of Gujarat.
