"Hi Rituu,I would have loved to meet however I moved to Milan in February and I am based here at least until July. Sorry about the confusion, a good reminder to make sure I modify my profile.Hopefully we will still be able to meet up at some point…"
From Canada to Indonesia, Tanzania, Ecuador and beyond, each place has taught me something powerful about the human capacity. Along the way, I learned to explore community development with creativity and developed an unwavering commitment to building vibrant civil societies.
To channel the passion I have Recrear, a non profit and international network of social innovators I co-founded.
To see young people take even more ownership of the community development process. My role in it all would be to foster the kind of civil society that connects young people more easily to development organizations. Whether that be through participatory action research or other forms.
That projects are designed without real eyes for the communities they are ultimately designed to serve. Civil society organizations often compete when there exists the opportunity to collaborate.
I'm proud of:
Being part of a community of young social innovators committed to making youth protagonists in their community's development story
