Staff Spotlight: Indira Sharma
Indira helped E4E as a volunteer from 1998 to 2008 before joining the team full-time as Parent Liaison in 2008. She does the “heavy lifting” of communicating with parents and answering all of their questions. Parents of Little Sisters trust Indira and appreciate communicating with her because her background is similar to their own. Indira also manages all LSF inventory and supplies (backpacks, books, notepads, pencils, pens, etc.) for all 2,000+ Little Sisters and the Post Office Box, which is critical for the 200+ Little Sisters who send monthly letters to their sponsors.
Indira got married in her early teenage years and was not able to complete her education. After raising her 4 children she went back to school and completed her studies through the 10th Grade.
