July 24, 2015: Ayushmann Khurana advocates genuine concern & strong opinion in favour of equal opportunities for all children. A thinking actor, Ayushmann has spoken in favor of emancipation for the girl child on social media.
He is also popular with youngsters & children because of his unpretentious approach. Which is why, Ayushmann will be participating in the nationwide NDTV Coca-Cola Support my School’ Campaign, Season 3. A televised event that will be held in Bangalore on July 31, Ayushmannwill be part of a proactive panel discussion with school children on the challenges that government schools face. Getting kids to connect to kids their age, especially young girls, is the thrust of this discussion.
Ayushmann has also donated substantially in the past towards this campaign. The NDTV campaign focuses on enhancing basic infrastructure in government & rural schools. As has been proven, adolescent girls often drop out from school, as they don’t even have access to a toilet! A sad state of affairs, it has also been proven that school children from urban areas impact opinion in favour of better sanitation, water & environments for less privileged schools.
A constant supporter of this campaign over the years, this time around, Ayushmann hopes to mobilize support for better sanitation infrastructure that will help girl children to continue their studies. And his participation in this ‘Support my School’ Campaign will definitely amplify its crucial message significantly.
