Lalita has been working on different aspects of fundraising and partnerships for over 20 years. Currently she manages partnerships UNICEF works on in India with corporates and foundations. As the world of partnerships has evolved a lot of partnerships Lalita has worked on include aspects of co-creating joint visions and look at win-win models.
ECD has been integral to the work UNICEF does to ensure all children survive and thrive. Partnerships within these have been critical to test models that create an impact and can be taken to scale.
For ECD particularly focused on nutrition, Lalita along with programme leadership is toying with the idea of creating a platform to increase private sector investments
