Education, Girl Child Empowerment and Equal Opportunities for all are concerns close to my heart. I am happy to support the scholarship scheme by the Ministry of Minority Affairs for meritorious girl students who cannot continue their education without financial support.
In order to negate discrimination against the girl child, stop 'Female Feticide' and support poor deserving girls in Education and Vocational Training, the ‘Beti’ project came into existence. It’s carried out in collaboration with the Bandra Union Park Residents Association. In the past two years, the education of 35 girls has been sponsored.
NDMCT in association with Budhelia Foundation is conducting a free one month computer basics program across seven centres in Mumbai. Approximately 4500 young minds will be nurtured this summer. Inaugurated the camp on 3rd May 2013 at Bandra (W), Kurla (E), Chandivali, Vile Parle, Vakola, Kurla (W) and Bandra (E).
Visited Matoshri Vidyamandir school in Mumbai as a part of the run-up to the NDTV Support My School Telethon. Discussed educational and social issues with the students, most of whom hail from surrounding slums of Chembur Gauli.
