Mittal Patel

Mittal Patel herself comes from very humble beginnings. She completed her primary education in the village school before her sporting talent won her several scholarships. Following that, Mittal Patel decided to pursue her B.Sc in Ahmedabad. Mittal Patel did her Bachelors in Science (Physics) and went ahead to pursue journalism securing Bachelor of Communication, Journalism & Public Relations, B.C.J.P., M.J.S Masters in Journalism Studies and M.Phil. in Communication, Journalism & Public Relations. While enrolled in Gujarat University’s Department of Journalism, Mittal Patel was selected for the scholarship on the ‘Social and Economic study of Migrant Workers’ by ‘Charkha’-Development Communication Network. In this context she conducted a study on the ‘Sugarcane workers of South Gujarat’; a task she completed after enduring lot of difficulties to stay with these families for a month. The experiences she gathered while staying with the families for a month were so profound that they gave her mission of her life.

Mittal joined an organization named ‘Janpath’ and here Mittal’s own NGO Vicharta Samuday Samarthan Manch was born. When she had first started working and researching these nomadic communities, she had not planned to form an organization but their plight so moved her that VSSM was created and registered under Society and Trusts Act. Mittal has taken on the challenging task to go to these far flung nomadic communities, establish relations with the inhabitants, and carry intensive efforts for provide socially acceptable livelihood alternates and the path- breaking task of sending the children of these communities to school

Apart from her mission, she carries out beautiful married life. Her husband, Maulik Kausal is an class- I officer in C.A.G. department of central Govt. He is also taking care of her task. She is has a 1 and a half year old daughter, named Kiara.
