An educator and social entrepreneur, Richa is currently pursuing her Ed.M in International Education Policy at HGSE. Richa believes that enabling children and educators realise their true potential can make the world a more equitable place for everyone. Her work with children from at-risk communities along with her lived experience as a child and caregiver fuel her commitment to build equity at an education policy level. Through her nonprofit, Labhya Foundation, she has been working on creating state-wide education programs in India in collaboration with teachers, students and policymakers. Richa’s work as an Equity and Inclusion Fellow is grounded in enabling sustainable policy-level shifts that make education child-centric, healing-centered and culturally responsive.
