My work in the social development sector over the past 16 years has been driven by the belief that the dignity of life is non-negotiable. I have been working to create impact at scale particularly on issues of poverty alleviation, youth empowerment and leadership development. I have held leadership positions and engaged extensively with a number of government organisations, international agencies, corporates and community-based institutions across Africa, Asia and Europe. I have also taught at IRMA, XIM-Bhubaneshwar, Shiv Nadar University and TERI University. I hold a Masters in rural management from IRMA and a Masters in Social Policy from The London School of Economics.
