Krishna Maheshwari is passionate about training youth on their sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), creating youth-friendly environments, and lobbying government officials.
Krishna Maheshwari was born and raised in Pakistan. He studied Computer Science and Sociology. As the Program Monitoring and Evaluation Officer and a Master Training at Gender Transformative Approach, he is responsible for monitoring and evaluation and facilitating SRHR and gender training workshops. As an advocate, Krishna was one of the first people in his community working to increase SRHR access for the community’s youth.
Krishna was inspired to become an advocate by Qadeer Baig, the Director of the Youth Engagement Program at Interactive Research & Development Pakistan, because he is someone who can speak on any platform and advocates for girls and women.
In his free time, Krishna enjoys exercising, readings books on Sufism, and going for long drives with his coach, girlfriend, and friends.
