“We believe that we’ve failed as a community in providing the space for young people to dream and aspire,” Kuhu Saha says. This is the motivating force behind her and David Merritt’s founding of the company Merit and its nonprofit arm, Give Merit. Kuhu (‘08 Sociology and American Culture) is fiercely and strategically committed to helping students from Detroit achieve their dreams through developing social and cultural awareness, career aspirations, and academic enrichment. Join Kuhu for this Alum Connection session to talk with her about finding her WHY and how she put it into motion through entrepreneurship and social justice advocacy in a city she loves.


About Kuhu:
Kuhu Saha is a visionary social justice champion with a keen eye for style. She has been a part of the Merit team since its inception, involved in all aspects of the company's development and growth. Kuhu is most fulfilled in her role expanding the organization’s community impact through Merit's nonprofit arm, Give Merit. As Co-founder and Executive Director, Kuhu and David Merritt have developed the FATE Program, an educational enrichment and leadership program for Detroit-area high school students. Working closely with community partners, donors, and families, Kuhu leads the effort in creating and implementing high-quality, innovative, and interactive youth development programming for Detroit youth ages 14 to 24. Give Merit and the FATE Program exist to enhance and extend educational opportunities for Detroit youth through innovative mentorship, enrichment, and athletic activities. Kuhu and her team are intent on helping young people aspire, believe, and contribute while creating platforms for them to create the future. She holds a BA from LSA in American Culture and Sociology, with a focus on social inequality.
