Leadership Team

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

We are a team of Biopharmaceutical Scientists and Software Professionals, but within our hearts, we carry the culture, traditions, and established roots of our homeland in India. We strive to give young girls in India the same opportunities for education and success that we have been given throughout our lifetime journey.

Here is our story.

Our Story

Our team is now located in the US, but our hearts belong to the rural communities in Uttar Pradesh, India, where we grew up and studied before coming to pursue our dreams in America. Because we grew up immersed in an area that was surrounded by poverty, we understand firsthand the challenges that exist for young girls who yearn to receive a proper education. Many of these intelligent girls remain hindered by traditional expectations of the woman’s role in society, and at Shiksha Nidhi, our goal is to advocate for them to receive the education that they desperately seek.


Together, we can break through historical barriers and help these young girls establish themselves as bright and successful students, aspiring entrepreneurs, scientists, or information technology professionals.


With hope, inspiration, and financial support, we want to show these young girls that when they dream big, the sky is the limit to what can be achieved.
