Priyanka Chopra Works For Educating Girl Child In India
The beautiful actress Priyanka Chopra seems to be on a social working spree, her latest one being that of educating girl child in India.
After getting involved with WAVE which is a social organisation working against women violence, Priyanka now started raising money to aid education of girl children in India.
Regarding this issue, Priyanka said, “Education is the most important thing for an individual — not just formal education acquired at schools and colleges. Even if you teach someone to be self-reliant by teaching them a skill — like sewing or crafting, it is enough. But yes, sending a girl to school is the best possible thing to do. And if you can’t, then at least teach her a way to fend for herself.”
Priyanka also said that because she is a celebrity, it is a necessity for her to work for a social cause. She said, “Being a known face is, definitely, a plus point. As actors, we have a fan following and if you can put that to good use to garner support for a cause, then why not? In fact, I think more public figures should be out there, standing up for causes they believe in.”
