I am Alisha Mahen, a social designer with a human centred design approach working to create sustainable solutions to social problems from the perspective of those facing the problems. My six years of experience as an educator in underserved communities in India has shown me the realities of working at the grassroot level and hence, I gravitate towards challenges that affect marginalized communities facing inequity.  I fundamentally believe that marginalized communities have the solutions, we have just never asked them. And I think of myself as a facilitator, and work towards elevating community voices, building their capacity and ensure sustainable change.

Please say hello -  I look forward to conversing with you, collaborating with you, or maybe even grabbing a coffee to chat with you.
