“Educate a man, you educate one person, educate a woman, you educate a complete family.”  This quote rings true in the heart of every Indian as they seek to uphold equality in our country. We all understand the significance of gender equality but are often limited with resources to contribute to the cause. 11th October is universally celebrated as International Day of the Girl Child and P&G Shiksha, makes a conscious effort towards the pursuit of this initiative.

P&G Shiksha believes that empowering girls with education is important for their future as well as the future of our country thus making the dreams of millions of girls across the nation a truth to behold. Many successful girls are united by their passion for education. Amongst the many, one of the most heart- wrenching stories of girl child empowerment is Hiramati, a 12 year old who is currently excelling at school. However this wasn’t the case before she enrolled herself at a P&G Shiksha supported school. She suffered from domestic violence and was also a trafficking victim who was sent to Mumbai. There she courageously went to a police station to register a complaint and was sent to a P&G Shiksha supported school to relive her childhood dream of being the first girl graduating in her family.

Another such inspiring story that is an inspiration for women encouragement is of Kiran Rawat from Srinagar. She fought against gender discrimination in her own family, where her mother loved her brother more than her sisters and herself. To fight against this injustice done, she bravely took admission at a P&G Shiksha supported school. Now she has the confidence to confront people, challenge the inequalities and the belief to create a difference to her life and society.

P&G Shiksha thus supports girl child education by recognizing the need for the betterment of our future generations. They seek to improve the lives of children from lesser privileged backgrounds, through health and education.  Armed with this principle P&G Shiksha aims at empower lives, and also lends inspiration to our efforts for an equal tomorrow.
