About Fritha Mason:

Fritha Mason  – Global CEO, Secret Projects 

Fritha is the global CEO and creative entrepreneur behind social enterprise – Secret Projects.  During her 13-year career in the voluntary and not-for-profit sector both in the U.K. and abroad, Fritha became aware of the diverse challenges that mothers face in India. She realised that there are millions of women in India who are trained to stitch, but are unable to use their sewing skills to earn an income. Fritha followed her passion to make a difference and created Secret Projects in order to work with women as business partners so they can support themselves, their families, make a valuable contribution to their communities and thrive.
