Welcome to Shiksha Nidhi

Ashish is the Secretary for Shiksha Nidhi Education for Girls. He was born, raised, and educated in India, and is now a software professional in Philadelphia, PA, with over 20 years of experience in the modern technology industry.


Ashish comes from a modest family and has an in-depth understanding of the challenges that underprivileged families go through every day. He has witnessed the lack of educational priority that young girls face, and he has gained firsthand knowledge of the barriers that still exist for women and children who are forced to comply with societal household expectations.


He has always been passionate about contributing to social causes that raise awareness for humanitarian issues, and through his involvement with Shiksha Nidhi, he desires to bring international attention to the critical educational crisis that exists throughout rural India.


Now, as an integral part of Shiksha Nidhi, he is excited about contributing his time and efforts to a cause that is dear to his heart, one that can truly make a difference in the lives of young girls from his homeland.
