Ms. Misra’s quest for experiential learning methodology has loomed large on her horizons throughout her professional experience encompassing Sherwood College, Nainital, Junior School; Vidya Devi Jindal School, Hisar; The Mayoor School, Bhopal (in collaboration with Mayo College Ajmer) and Scindia Kanya Vidyalaya, Gwalior.
In pursuit of inculcating experiential learning, Ms. Nishi Misra came up with the idea of service for women. She shared the thought with her students and guided them to survey the areas around Gwalior to find a fit cause to espouse. It was found that Women hygiene is a major issue and not addressed because of taboos and other social reasons. She worked hard to acquire a low cost indigenous sanitary napkin unit from Coimbatore. The idea behind this was that they would make sanitary napkins for the women who couldn’t afford them and laid the foundation for SKV - Sankalp.
After the successful running of the unit in the school campus Ms. Nishi Misra initiated Women Empowerment Projects under SKV - Sankalp in two villages - Jarga and Virpur where low-cost and eco-friendly sanitary napkin machines were installed, and the production is managed by village women.
