Sumitra Mishra is the executive director of Mobile Creches India, an organisation that provides holistic development to children between the age(s) of birth to six while fighting for their rights nationally. Previously Sumitra was the Country Director of iPartner India, a UK based charity that helps individuals, families, advisors, companies, charitable trusts and foundations connect with initiatives which currently fall outside the priorities of established agency funding. In her previous roles she has worked with extremely vulnerable populations – persons with disabilities, women with disabilities, tribal groups, enslaved and abused women and children, facing multiple marginalization; enabling an environment of access to support, rights and dignity. Sumitra’s work in the South Asian context has been invaluable in forming, establishing and sustaining groups of people who have driven their own fight against injustice and created models of empowerment and equality within local communities. She sits on the Government of India Advisory Committee on Juvenile Justice and Reformation of Children in Conflict with Law. She is also an advisory member of the Disability Rights Group.
