Marly Cornell presents 'Together We Empower'

Together We Empower offers a close look at a unique NGO that has been working in partnership with communities in rural India since 1999. The history of Sehgal Foundation illustrates a path of rich progress along with some missteps that resulted in valuable learning. This record reveals the rationale and the hearts behind the organization's entrepreneurial approach to rural development - an undertaking that is deeply rooted in a team culture, collaborative relationships, and an unwavering commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of the rural poor.

Marly Cornell is an artist, writer, and manuscript editor with a BFA from Moore College of Art in Philadelphia and an MA from St. Mary's University of Minnesota.
