In her work experience of last 37 years, Ramola has been actively involved in promoting sustainable development programs and strategy’s since the year 1983.
Her first research internship was on government rural development schemas and policies with the Centre of Science for Villages (CSV) in northern Maharashtra.
Post that she worked as the national program coordinator for the Institute of Gandhian Studies, Sewagram. She also started freelancing for field research in social
innovation and impact management programs for Gandhi Peace Centre New Delhi.
Further she undertook a special assignment as an associate research analyst for appropriate technology for rural development and low cost housing. This program was designed in association with a panel of senior faculty professors for the department of architecture at the Vishvesvaraya Collage of Engineering (VRC) Nagpur.
Almost a decade after, Ramola’s work started to diversify more towards women and child welfare in rural India. In 1995 she was working as a specialised analyst and training coach for woman and rural development with YUVA Mumbai.
This simultaneously opened new axes to destitute women and children welfare projects with key focus on critical social and emotional skills such as self-awareness, emotional regulation, social skills, goal setting and responsible decision-making.
Soon she also became a consultant for project evaluation methodology and impact strategy.
In the year 1997 Ramola first connected with AVP International, an organisation with a long foundation of work in the USA and UK on creative conflict resolutions. As part of their global affiliation of network Ramola became one of their key founding facilitator for India. Over the next 20 years she extensively worked both nationally and internationally as part of the global facilitators community. The program in depth covers topics such as Alternate Towards Violence, Conflict Mapping, Trauma Healing and Gander Equality.
These diverse experiences fostered her strong
sense of identity as well as her ability to build relationships with new communities across lines of differences.
