Ms. Sujata Sahu
Founder, Director at 17000 ft Foundation
Sujata Sahu is the Founder of 17000 ft, and also the passion and the never-say-die-spirit behind it. An ex-corporate techie and a teacher by profession, a solo trek into Ladakh brought home the incredible difficulties of the region as she herself struggled to overcome her pulmonary edema. Keenly inspired by the simplicity of the people and their eagerness for a good education for their children, she founded 17000 ft, along with her husband to impact lives in the ignored and isolated villages of Ladakh. The backbone behind 17000 ft's educational initiatives, she is happiest when travelling and teaching children in the remote villages. She received the Nari Shakti Award from The Hon'ble President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee on the occasion of International Woman's Day, 8th March 2016. She gratefully accepted on behalf of our entire team at @17000 ft Foundation
