Mr. Ganesh Pandey (Convener, Shramik Bharti)
As a Law student after his graduation, Mr. Ganesh Pandey had been involved with the student movement. Later, he got deeply involved with the working class movement both with the organized and the unorganized sectors of the labouring poor. Resigning from the steady government job, he made his entry into the Developmental Sector at the age of forty-two by founding Shramik Bharti in 1986.
An effective orator and a well-meaning strategist with an ingrained intention for the upliftment of the suppressed, Mr. Pandey has carved a niche for his vision and mission by bringing Shramik Bharti to its present stature. His untiring efforts have helped in making Shramik Bharti a credible resource and training centre to help other grassroots civil society organisations walk the road that he has laid for them. Mr. Pandey has been sincere in his solidarity and handholding for the voluntary sector in general and in the endowment of emerging Development Organisations in particular.
