Tenzing Bodosa, Assam, India

Tenzing Bodosa is the owner of the world’s first elephant-friendly tea farms. At Tenzing Bodosa‘s lush green tea estates in Kachibari village in the Udalguri district of Assam, you will see hornbills, wild pigs, deer, and peacocks, but that’s not all. At these two farms in the Bodoland area of the village, you will also come across more than 70 elephants, leading to their certification as the world’s first elephant-friendly farms. At 10, Tenzing started looking after the ancestral farms after the death of his father. He took up alternative jobs to support his mother, who was the sole breadwinner in the family.
