PROFILE

Ms. Sneha Jha , Senior Project Associate

I have done Bachelors in Political Science (Hons) from I.P.College for Women, Delhi University and Masters in Development with specialization in public policy from Azim Premji University. After completing my masters, I began working with an NGO and developed an understanding around issues pertaining to child rights violations and gained skills in designing training and facilitation with youth and adults. I did study on finding the bottlenecks in the implementation of laws and policies meant for the protection of the rights of the children in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. I have also worked with government school's teachers in East Delhi on leadership building skills to inculcate systems thinking, compassion and empathy in the classroom learning. I have a keen interest in research and understanding policy implementation through gender lens.

At present in ISST,  I work in the capacity of Senior Project Associate, where I look after this project called ''Creating an Enabling Environment for Realizing Aspirations of Adolescent girls from Urban Slum Settlements''. I facilitate sessions focusing on building life skills of adolescent girls and boys which aim to help them realize their potential, empower them to take their life decisions and able to fight back patriarchy through creating spaces for critical thinking and constructive dialogues in their homes and communities.
