Sandhya began her journey for social change by engaging in a theater series where she led and organized over 35 forum theaters, covering issues of domestic violence and gender inequality. This journey deepened her knowledge and provided first-hand experience on issues concerning women and girls. She realized that the root cause of inaction against violence and discrimination against women was due to a lack of access to education and economic opportunity. Ever since, she has been engaged in various initiatives that focused on supporting and upskilling women. Her dedication led her to start Mahila Pahila, an organization that strives to educate and create economic opportunities for low income and urban poor women and girls. 
Through the incubator she plans to create local units that run online classes for women, filling the gap created by the national shutdown since March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
