Evolution of COROAT

COROAT was initiated by Ms. M. Padmavathi, along with likeminded women in 2009. Ms. M. Padmavathi is a daughter of traditional artisan. She has experienced all vulnerabilities due to poverty, indebtedness to private money lenders, siblings became child labourers and subject to child marriage. She motivated herself towards studies and turned as a first-generation graduate, to resolve the issues faced by her family. Her struggle to mainstream her family has made her to widen her vision towards social inclusion of all marginalsied sections of society. She identified likeminded women to join her in evolving COROAT.
