Maya Koene

Maja Koene, mental health professional and gifted photographer travelling all around the world, met Rajagopal P.V. and got introduced to Ekta Parishad in the early 1990ies.. Very much impressed by Ekta Parishad's activities and commitment for the marginalised people in India, she dedicated her life and assets to serve their goals too and built up the CESCI Center near Madurai. Maja Koene died in autumn 1999, only 54 years old, and left an impressive Center for Socio-Cultural Interaction, where her spirit lives on.
