  • The Quote or saying that encourages you?
  • “Follow your dreams, believe in yourself and don't give up”.

  • How you will contribute towards the not so fortunate children & women of our society.
  • I would contribute towards the not so fortunate children and women of our society by providing EDUCATION. Education is important in helping to improve lives, break the cycle of poverty and ensure that all people, particularly women have control over their destiny. Education is one of the most critical areas of empowerment for women. Among children not attending school there are twice as many girls as boys, and among illiterate adults there are twice as many women as men. Offering girls basic education is one sure way of giving them much greater power -- of enabling them to make genuine choices over the kinds of lives they wish to lead. An educated woman has the skills, information, independence and self-confidence that she needs to be a better parent, worker and citizen. “Padhega India Tabhi toh Badhega India”
