Armed with a background spanning both corporate and development sectors, Meghna discerned the challenges faced by underprivileged youth and employers, prompting the birth of SWAN Livelihood.
In the face of adversities like extreme weather and the relentless wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, Meghna's tenacity and focused efforts, buoyed by unwavering family and mentor support, transformed challenges into opportunities. At the heart of SWAN lies a profound inspiration – the upliftment of underprivileged youth and the cultivation of fulfilling relationships between them and prospective employers.
