You’ve probably never heard of Dr. Sono Khangharani or Anant Kumar, but they are two truly incredible leaders who have devoted their lives to making the world a better place for the poor in Pakistan and India.
Pakistan’s Dawn paper just wrote a profile of Dr. Sono. This is the kind of news we don’t get out of Pakistan, and it’s important to hear and remember that everywhere at any time, there are outstanding individuals doing amazing things to make the world a better place.
And just yesterday at the Acumen Fund Investor Gathering we were lucky enough to have Anant Kumar speak to us about his plans to grown LifeSpring Hospitals from 6 to 30 high-quality, low-cost maternal hospitals in India in the next two years. I wrote about LifeSpring hospitals here on the Acumen Fund blog.
What strikes me most about Dr. Sono and Anant Kumar is their quiet grace, passion, and humility — and their undying respect for each and every person.
