Including India, the programme is spread over 160 countries and has already reached 3 million children.
UN Global Goals champions, 250 educationalists , UN bodies, corporates, youth groups, students and teachers gathered to initiate the programme in India.
Sonam, who has joined hands with Gems Education, UNICEF, Reliance Group and the Global Goals Campaign for the same initiative, said, “I am somebody who is very regretful of the fact that I didn’t finish my school after 12th grade. I went to university and I am trying to finish that right now. At the age of 30, I am trying to finish my under grade.”
“I feel that films like ‘Neerja’ and ‘Khoobsurat’ were very inspiring. It was entertaining and engaged you. I think that simple ideas and simple messages are so effective that if told in simpler way, it can be more entertaining. It will create impact on young people,” she added.
Sonam is also one of the ambassadors of “The World’s Largest Lesson India”.
