“We are to the universe only as much as we give back to it.”
That belief drove Meera Gandhi, the CEO and founder of The Giving Back Foundation, when she started her charity in 2010. As part of that work, Gandhi has made a documentary, written a coffee table book, and is now coming out with a new one, “3 Tips.” All this, while managing three children of her own.
When she was a teenager, Gandhi volunteered at Asha Daan for the abandoned and differently abled children in Mumbai where she met Mother Teresa. She says that it was only after spending enough time around Mother Teresa that she realized that giving back is a great joy in itself.
Born in Mumbai, India, to an Irish mother and an Indian father. Gandhi graduated from the University of Delhi with an undergraduate degree in economics, after which she earned an MBA degree from Boston University.
