Arti is a Project Coordinator in the International Programmes team. Prior to joining BIT, she worked at Street Child of Nepal on programmes which aim to empower marginalised girls of the “untouchable” Musahar caste through education, life skills lessons and livelihood support. Before that, Arti worked for two and a half years in the public relations and communications industry, across both the public and private sector, for various non-profits, intergovernmental organisations, think tanks and corporates. She also worked on various research projects – within an NGO and social policy think tank – in the areas of education, public health, youth, equality and justice, particularly in Uganda where she carried out an impact assessment on malaria prevention as well as her dissertation research on the sexual exploitation of adolescent girls in the rural south-western region.
Arti holds a Master’s degree in Gender, Policy and Inequalities from the London School of Economics and Political Science and a Bachelor’s degree in Social Policy from the University of Nottingham.
