Welcome to Shiksha Nidhi
Dr. Amit Katiyar is the Treasurer and Head of Fundraising for Shiksha Nidhi. Amit was born in Kanpur Dehat, and comes from a humble family background from Kanpur, UP, India. His parents understood the value of a quality education and relocated to Kanpur with the dream of sending their son to a good school. As he saw his parents consistently place importance on education, this priority for learning was passed onto Amit from a young age and served as a foundation for his academic future and career ambition. Amit completed his schooling from Pt. Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Vidyalaya, Kanpur, and then moved on to pursue his master’s degree from IIT Delhi.
After obtaining his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Cincinnati, OH, Amit has had the opportunity to work with many U.S. biopharmaceutical companies during the past 15 years in drug development for immune-oncology patients. He is passionate about his professionally and personally rewarding career path, and with his involvement in Shiksha Nidhi, he desires to raise awareness about the importance of education in underserved areas of India.
His passion for serving the community and people in need gives him purpose and fulfillment in his daily life. Amit wants to continue to serve the community by joining hands with Shiksha Nidhi to create the resources and opportunities that will give underprivileged girls a brighter academic future. Ultimately, he hopes to see the day when all girls receive the education they deserve, can attend college, and enjoy a rewarding career. With the indispensable knowledge they have attained, they will move on to raise their families, build a better nation, and create a world with a brighter future.
Please join us in making the journey of Shiksha Nidhi successful. Your support will help these young girls achieve their biggest goals and turn their greatest dreams into reality.
