Instead, she put the day to good use by spending it with the girls of Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya (KGBV), an NGO located in Jalna, as part of her association with UNICEF. In the past too, as part of her UNICEF duties, the actress has visited kids in schools and orphanages on several occasions.
Recalling the experience, Kareena tells hitlist, “The girls from Jalna were bright and attentive. I, along with UNICEF, wish to promote child-friendly schools and joyful learning for all young girls across India.
Joyful learning at KGBV schools helps our young girls feel secure and they help them pursue their dreams. Not many people know that these young girls don’t get to study after the eighth grade and I, along with UNICEF, would like to encourage and urge people and the government to help these young girls get what they deserve.”
