Rasika Uplekar works as a part-time trainee at the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) in Geneva, Switerland. She graduated with a MSc Globalisation and Development degree from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) of University of London in 2011. Prior to this, she studied at the University of Bath and received a BSc (Honours) Social Policy and Administration degree. She is originally from Mumbai, India, but has been based in Geneva for a decade.
Rasika also interns part-time at UNAIDS where she is contributing to a publication outlining the significance of Social Determinants of Health for achieving UNAIDS’ goals. Rasika has previously interned at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) in Mumbai and hopes to build on this work experience to eventually pursue a career within the development sector, at an international or non-governmental organization. While her academic focus lies mainly in areas such as gender, migration and HIV/AIDS, Rasika is also passionate about fighting against hunger and for access to clean drinking water and adequate sanitation in developing countries. She is excited to be a part of the Eat So They Can campaign this year!
