Sushil was born in a remote village of the state of Jharkhand among the Santal people. The Santals are one of the largest tribal groups in India. Most of them are illiterate and poor. Sushil was one of the rare ones to pursue an education.
After graduation Sushil decided to serve his people by helping them in Community Development. Ever since, he has been involved in various capacities to assist them. He is grateful that GHNI has come alongside him in his vision to bring help and hope to thousands of Santal villages.
