Lekha Singh

Lekha Singh is a photographer, filmmaker, and activist. Museums throughout the United States have displayed her photography exhibitions, and her photographs have been featured in museum collections, magazines, and books, including National Geographic’s “The Other Side of War: Women’s Stories of Survival and Hope.” Her photographs offer understanding and insight into people around the world.

In the early 2000s, Lekha founded the Aidmatrix Foundation, where she pioneered the use of innovative technology to change the way that aid is delivered both in disaster relief and in day-to-day needs.

Lekha’s work as a photographer exposed her to the stories of victims of warfare around the world, leading her to co-direct the independent documentary Beyond Right and Wrong: Stories of Justice and Forgiveness. She has dedicated her life to philanthropic enterprises, and previously served on the Board of Directors for many organizations, including Women for Women International, Free the Children, and Aidmatrix Foundation. She has produced numerous films, including the Academy-Award nominated documentary The Square.
