TEDx Talks
In India, the most common form of livelihood for the trans women community is begging or sex work. Neelam Jain, a social entrepreneur shares her views on the upliftment of the transgender community in India. In this talk, she focuses on some of the real issues faced by the transgender community in India and talks about how to make a difference to create a society where every person can be truly themselves. A 24 year old Social Entrepreneur, one of the first things you notice about Neelam is how young she is, but the passion and drive to build an inclusive society, was always deeply ingrained. It was this passion that a corporate cell couldn’t contain – after two years of working with Goldman Sachs, she founded PeriFerry, a social enterprise that supports transgender persons in India through employment, entrepreneurship and upskilling. Her aim is to positively impact the massive one crore Transgender population, and to do this, despite the unthinkable setbacks in this space, she stands firm in her conviction. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
