MG Motor India launched the fourth season of its MG Changemakers’ initiative organised in collaboration with 101 India, a youth-focused storytelling platform that highlights stories which defy the traditional norms of society.

This initiative is aligned with MG and 101 India's mission to honour and reward Indian women who are eager to transform the society through their unwavering commitment and passion.

This year, the emphasis of MG Changemakers is on ‘Sustainability’ as a collective imperative and an individual calling.

MG Motor consistently tries to balance all of its operations through conscientious sustainability initiatives aimed at lowering the carbon footprint, as part of their stated and actively pursued commitment to ensuring a healthy and emission-free lifestyle for everyone.

Keeping in line with the three preceding seasons, this year’s MG Changemakers will also applaud heroes in their own right. This year’s impactful Changemakers are six remarkable women who have been at the forefront of ground-breaking and constructively innovative sustainable interventions in the society. These stalwarts not only convey the company’s spirit of sustainability but also inspire countless others to follow in their footsteps.

The six women are as under:

  1. Dr. Janak Palta McGilligan, a Padam Shri recipient who has empowered more than 2 lakh rural and tribal women and girls.
  2. Jal Saheli, who is working in Bundelkhand on water-related issues. She has helped avert droughts in over 100 villages and has helped build 450 check dams and 56 lakes.
  3. Chandani Khandelwal, a Bhubaneswar-based graduate of the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), is involved in the manufacturing of eco-friendly packaging made of bamboo, grass, and leaves, and in so doing, provides livelihood to 500 female artisans.
  4. Monisha Narke, who makes school desks out of cartons and recycles 750 tonnes of garbage every year.
  5. Licypriya Kangujam, often referred to as “India’s Greta Thunberg”, is one of the youngest global climate activists.
  6. Nalini Shekar, co-founder, and Executive Director of Hasiru Dala passion lies in helping unorganised garbage industry workers regain dignity, have better access to stable employment, and provide for their families; social security.

MG Changemakers was first introduced in 2018 to recognize and honour the spirit of women who inspire societal change. Since then, the initiative has honoured multiple women who work to improve their communities and empower individuals. Season four of this program takes this initiative ahead.

The program's open invitation invites participation and aims to create a network of Changemakers from throughout the nation. Nominees can connect by sharing their inspiring stories. Select entries are felicitated and the MG Motor India network supports and facilitates the concentrated endeavours of the chosen entries in every way imaginable.
