The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has released a series of videos on sustainable development goals (SDG). In one of these videos, Manoj Sharma, Director, MicroSave speaks on how India has progressed on SDG 1, or No Poverty and SDG 10, or Reduced Inequalities. Mr Sharma mentions that the JAM Trinity (Jan Dhan, Aadhaar and Mobile) holds the key to some of the biggest reforms ever attempted in the country. He also stressed on the fact that there should be a greater emphasis on empowering women in geographies like India. There is a need for India to focus on social welfare programs through a very specific gender lens.
