Kavita is a founding member of SHEDO. She MSc in botany and also did MPhil before choosing education as career. She started her journey in field of social work while working as a Teacher in government school. There she realised that education system is lacking in innovation and thus is unable to attract children in manner it should. Most of the students find education boring and thus readily skip classes. She is working in field of education from last 10 years and she believes all the work being done in field of education is based upon people ideas of quality education whereas we completely forget to understand the meaningfulness of education from children’s point of view and this contributes in making education burdensome for them. Thus she is committed to find new innovative methods for education she also lead TALEEM which is music and fun based education initiative of SHEDO
