Akshita Bhanj Deo and her sister are directors of Mayurbhanj’s 200-year-old Belgadia Palace.

They are working to build sustainable tourism with social impact.

Raising funds from palace guests, they started Mayurbhanj Foundation to help local community.

Last year Akshita launched GivingPi, India’s first invite-only family philanthropy network.

 It has raised $300 million and impacted over 100 million Indians - Akshita's efforts are commendable.
