By profession, Richa is an attorney in premier law; making and defining institutions of India the ‘Supreme Court’. She has spent over a decade understanding the law and legal system with the very soul to make this knowledge and legal expertise available to those who need it most. During her work as a law professional, she has handled a wide range of cases. She has primarily dealt with those who are underprivileged, exploited and restricted, fighting for them to have fair access to the instrument of law. In addition to this, she has worked to make free legal aid available to the needy in a real sense by providing legal counseling through various non-profitable organizations. This empowerment and enabling of real exploited peoples has always been one of her primary passions. Going beyond formally practicing law, she has regular association with NGO and is active in a range of welfare activities such as healthcare camps, blood donation, and creating awareness about women and children's rights. Her efforts also extend to the publication of various articles in national and regional level magazines on issues dealing with social problems related to woman and children. This creates awareness in society and provides a platform to interact with a bigger group of people. Furthermore, active participation in social events and seminars are a strong source of her knowledge building and familiarizing with global trends. Overall, she considers her contribution very small for the big world but has a firm belief that the persistent effort in making women and girls aware of their legal rights, helping to pave their way to settle in the mainstream of the society, and creating opportunities for employment for woman so that their trafficking can be stopped globally are important future endeavors that will surely yield some positive change in the society and make it a more livable place for woman and children. During SHEROES United's recent Humanitarian Mission to India, Richa orchestrated the entire Boots on the Ground campaign. She has continued the mission and is gathering her own team to spread the word in her country to help better the lives of women and girls and to educate young men at the same time.
Richa is a very valuable asset to the organization of SHEROES United!
