Raindrop in the Drought: Godavari Dange

A school dropout at 13, bride at 15, and widow at 19, Godavari Dange grew up against a backdrop of mounting debt, wilted crops, and recurring disaster in the epicenter of India’s agrarian crisis, Marathwada. Driven by her personal tragedies and everyday exclusions of other Bahujan women in the region, Godavari has spent over two decades in feminist organizing around building Indigenous, sustainable climate solutions such as the innovative “one-acre model”. Ever since, supported by NGO Swayam Shikshan Prayog, she has backed over 50,000 women in Marathwada and has addressed various public platforms. Yet her work has found little coverage in India’s mainstream media or globally.
