How I got into Social Work?
Mridula Mehrishi: “After doing my B Ed from Dehradun and advance management programme from Harvard Business School, Boston, I pursued my profession in teaching for 35 years. I was observant and helpful from the childhood, and I always wanted to help those who are in need and did not have much of the resources. Now, I have been running my own foundation called Maya Gopal Foundation to help the downtrodden people get along the society from the past 3 years.”
