Dr. Prakash Tyagi is the head of the Gandhian non-profit organization called GRAVIS (https://www.gravis.org.in) working to empower the total farmers, miners, and manual laborers in the Thar desert in Rajasthan, India. A medical doctor, Prakash has assumed leadership for the enormous tasks that GRAVIS undertakes. GRAVIS currently serves about 1.3 million people, providing schools, hospitals, water conservation as well as women empowerment projects. As devoted followers of Gandhi and his methods of Sarvodaya – universal uplift – Prakash’s parents founded the GRAVIS organization in 1983 to serve the poorest of the poor, and Prakash takes up responsibility where his parents left off.
