Programme Mentor – Action for Equality
As a Programme Mentor at ECF, Jagdish finds great joy in having a dialogue with young men about issues which pertain to gender. He derives inspiration from these dialogues and perseveres to build strong relationships with his mentees.
Our youngest team-member, he has recently completed his Masters in Social Work from Karve Institute of Social Service, Pune. He volunteered for 5 years with Samyak, an organisation which works with Gender and Masculinity in Pune. He brings rich insights into equal rights and men’s involvement in the fight for equality from his volunteering experience.
Jagdish is always in pursuit of the fine arts- he’s a certified mehendi and rangoli artist and is currently pursuing classical dance.
He is proud of being a part of the ECF team because it gives him an opportunity to translate his beliefs about equal rights for all into action.
