MaolKeki Foundation appoints Head of Projects

MaolKeki Foundation has evolved tremendously from its humble beginnings training smallholder farmers at village crossroads in Bishnupur district of Manipur. Over the last five years, the Foundation has embarked on a number of ambitious projects across Manipur covering multiple areas such as AgriEntrepreneurship, Agricultural Value Chain Studies, Educational Scholarships, Female Hygiene and Empowerment, Last-Mile Health, promoting Manipuri Sports, Dance & Culture, and providing Affordable High-Quality Accommodation to those coming from afar to live, work or study in Imphal.

To realign to this success and to continue driving further growth, Ms. Nirupa Sanjenbam has been appointed as the Head of Projects to oversee the successful implementation of the various projects. Ms. Sanjenbam will continue to focus on last-mile projects and AgriEntrepreneurship, and new project managers will be appointed to build on the work she has started on health, education and other development areas. Nirupa joined MaolKeki Foundation as a Project Coordinator under a partnership with Syngenta Foundation India and has worked tirelessly to grow our AgriEntrepreneurship Program. For her dedication and impact, she was also recognized as a Woman Achiever by the Government of India in May 2022.

Our success would not have been possible without the long-term support of our partners, stakeholders and advisors and we would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the efforts of many including AEGF, Anaha, the Government of Manipur, NABARD, Swiss TPH and Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture.

Please join us in wishing Ms. Nirupa Sanjenbam and her team much success in the coming years.
