Bill Gates arrives in Bhubaneshwar, visits slum and interacts with residents | Watch here | Oneindia

On Wednesday morning, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, alongside state government officials, made a notable visit to a slum in Bhubaneswar, Odisha.

Their destination was the Biju Adarsh Colony in the Maa Mangla Basti, where they engaged directly with the residents.

Gates' purpose extended beyond a mere inspection of living conditions; he also took the opportunity to interact closely with women's self-help groups (SHGs) that operate within the area.

This visit underscores the collaborative efforts between various departments of the state government and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Together, they are striving to address critical issues within marginalised communities, particularly focusing on empowerment initiatives led by women's SHGs.

The presence of such a prominent figure as Bill Gates highlights the importance of these grassroots efforts and signals a commitment to fostering positive change and inclusive development in Odisha's urban areas.
