Raised in rural India, Nivedita witnessed firsthand the hardship that the children living there faced. Her maternal grandfather provided funding to help send poor children to school, setting an example and making her aware that children can fulfill their dreams with support and encouragement.
She went on to get her master’s degree in Social Work from The Tata Institute of Social Sciences. With more than thirty years of experience in the social development sector within India, working with both NGOs and corporations, she has worked on a broad range of diverse issues throughout her career, but always with an emphasis on serving children, especially those in difficult circumstances.
Today, Nivedita is the India Country Head of Miracle Foundation India and leads the team on the enhancement and implementation of our partnership method.
