Nitin Patil

Programme Mentor

Nitin holds a Master’s degree in Social Work and joined ECF so he could work on addressing Gender Based Violence and Discrimination at its root. As he began to conduct Action for Equality sessions as a Programme Mentor, he was pleasantly surprised by the response he received from the programme participants. “I never thought boys aged 13 – 17 years of age could grasp ideas of protection and how that further restricted girls’ freedom”.

When not preparing for his evening sessions with the Action for Equality participants, Nitin can be found musing over his latest piece of poetry. He has been published by Tathapi as well as Men Against Violence and Abuse. He has also won several accolades at state level debates.
