About the author: ​Aditi Srivastav

​Aditi Srivastav

I have been a fundraiser for just over a year, starting as a Major Donors fundraiser at Prince’s Charities and now as Supporter Retention & Development Coordinator at Plan UK. I’ve found that my background in Journalism and development studies makes me passionate about individual giving, audience insight and getting creative with the actual mailing pack! I’ve grown up in New Delhi and only moved to London 3 years back. My everyday motivation to raise funds comes from having worked with Street Children on railway platforms and people living in Delhi’s slums.
