Dear HIFA Members,

Warm Greeting from Nepal.

My name is Sharmistha Sharma and I am a new member of HIFA.

I am currently doing my Masters in Sociology as well as work as a freelancer in social science research areas. I have about more than 2 years of experience working in the field of public health as a Intern, Volunteer, Health Officer and WASH Officer. Apart for my academic and work I have been actively involved with various youth groups too and have been awarded "Hanyang University Social Change Maker Scholar" in Manila for a project name GiFT "Girls Friendly Toilet".
