Having built and supported over 330 schools till date impacting the lives of over 6,00,000 children, P&G’s flagship Corporate Social Responsibility program P&G Shiksha continues to march forward with the motto ‘Padhega India, Badhega India’. In its 11th year, P&G Shiksha continues to make the necessary infrastructure interventions by building and supporting schools across the country. This gives the children the access to education. Extending her support towards this noble initiative, Tollywood actress Koel Mallick, visited the P&G Shiksha School in Kolkata.
Promoting advance learning amongst the underprivileged children in this school is what P&G Shiksha aims to do as a part of their interventions. They have built a computer lab for the students in the P&G Shiksha school here in Kolkata.
Koel Mallick said, “I have been supporting P&G Shiksha over the years by choosing P&G products and today I am very happy to visit the P&G Shiksha school and witness the difference it has made in the lives of the children here in Kolkata.I strongly believe that education is extremely important for every child’s growth. Interacting with these children has made me realize that there is so much urge and hunger in them to learn and I am sure that some great professionals will walk out of these very classrooms in the future and will make the city proud.”

Koel Mallick, who apart from being an extremely well known actress, is also a trained Odissi dancer taught the little girls from the school the ‘Chouka’, a stance from Odissi dance. It was indeed wonderful to see the little girls attempting the dance form with graceful moves and beautiful expressions. She also engaged in conversations with the children who asked the versatile actress questions about her school days.
