About Trina Talukdar

Trina started working in Kalighat, one of Asia's oldest and largest red light areas, at the age of 18. Her interaction with commercial sex workers spurred her passion to start her own non-profit, Kranti, that identifies the potential in girls who have been trafficked to become agents of social change. Trina then moved to Ashoka: Innovators for the Public to explore other areas and models of work in the development sector, through Ashoka’s fellow selection process.
She is currently an Atlas Corps fellow serving at the American Express Foundation.
