Kolkata:Having built and supported over 330 schools till date that will impact the lives of over 6,00,000 children, P&G’s flagship Corporate Social Responsibility program P&GShiksha continues to march forward with the motto ‘Padhega India, Badhega India’. In its 11th year, P&G Shiksha continues to make the necessary infrastructure interventions by building and supporting schools across the country thereby giving children the access to education. Extending her support towards this noble initiative,renowned actress KoelMallick, visited the P&G ShikshaSchool in Kolkata. KoelMallick, who apart from being an extremely well known actress in Kolkata, is also a trained Odissi dancer and she gracefully taught the little girls from the school the ‘Chouka’, a stance from the dance.It was indeed wonderful to see the little girls attempting the dance form with graceful moves and beautiful expressions. She also engaged in conversations with the children who asked the versatile actress questions about her school days.
Technologically advanced learning is being promoted by a lot of schools in bigger cities, however, underprivileged children rarely get a chance to access it. Promoting advance learning amongst the underprivileged children in this school is what P&G Shiksha aims to do as a part of their interventions and taking that forward, they have built a computer lab for the students in the P&G Shiksha school here in Kolkata. P&G Shiksha has not only encouraged providing basic education but has also focused on the overall development of a child and through this intervention of building the computer lab, they are giving a chance to the students to do just that. The excitement of the students of the school knew no bounds as Koel taught them how to use the computer and watched the children try their hand at it.
Speaking on the occasion, Koyel Mullick said,”I am very happy to visit the P&G Shiksha school and witness the difference it has made in the lives of the children here in Kolkata.”
