Urvashi joined Breakthrough in 2005, just in time for the launch of our What Kind of Man Are You? campaign. One aspect of the campaign was to invite youth to ask questions, via SMS and emails, about sexuality and HIV/AIDS, and her job was to answer them. She has gone on to develop and facilitate Breakthrough’s workshops and training sessions, with particular focus on gender and violence against women and on using media to get young people active on social issues. She earned degrees in home science and non-profit management in both India and the United States. Before coming to Breakthrough, she worked on child and refugee rights with other Delhi-based organizations. Urvashi is also trained as a practitioner of Reiki, the art of healing through touch and loves to travel.
