Highlights: Having been born in India, Neeraj grew up always being conscious of social issues as his middle-class family faced many struggles when they moved to India after the partition. His zeal for social entrepreneurship, gender equality, and sustainable development can be rooted back to the stories he heard about his grandmother during his childhood. She was a freedom-fighter who went to jail fighting for the rights of Indians. Though he's been working in the corporate world for the past few years, his passion to help impact social change has never fainted. Neeraj looks to translate his corporate world experience to help iMerit in its target of empowering women by helping them secure a job/livelihood. He is honored to go back to India and get involved first hand at a grass-roots level with AIF. By the end of the fellowship, he hopes to have made an impact on the issues that Indian citizens are facing and is optimistic that this experience will help grow as a person.
