Katrina Kaif stands for girl child education
Katrina Kaif, who is basking in the glory of TIGER ZINDA HAI, has come on board as the brand ambassador for international award-winning non-profit organisation, Educate Girls.
Katrina is deeply inspired to lend her voice to one of the most pressing development issues – that of educating girls. Through her association with Educate Girls, she attempts to bring renewed focus to girl child education and gender equality. “For over a decade now, Educate Girls has been partnering with the Government in bringing out-of-school girls back to school. I am committed to support Educate Girls in the endeavour to build an India where girls have equal opportunities to access quality education” she said.
Katrina has spent time acquainting herself about the several barriers to girls’ education in the country, especially in rural, tribal regions. She calls Educate Girls’ program model “highly sustainable” as it is based on principles of community-ownership and collaboration that involves the families, village leaders, local administration and school authorities to jointly push for change.
Speaking on the occasion, Safeena Husain, Founder of Educate Girls said, “It is a moment of immense honor for Educate Girls to have Katrina Kaif join us as an Ambassador. With Katrina as an advocate, we are hoping to unite voices and amplify conversations on the subjects of gender equity and girls’ education. We are hoping that this partnership will help contribute to the national mission of “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao.”
Katrina came clad in a simple attire for the event in blue denims and red tee.
