Manish Dureja, Managing Director, JetPrivilege handed over the cheque to Sheetal Mehta, CEO of Nanhi Kali, and Mana Shetty, Trustee, Save the Children India, at a ceremony held at the school run by Save The Children India in Mumbai.
Dureja said, “By collaborating with ‘Nanhi Kali’ and ‘Save The Children India’, we support their cause of providing education to children from weaker sections of the society and enabling them to achieve their dreams. To celebrate the milestone of 5 million members, we thought of partnering with ‘Nanhi Kali’ and ‘Save The Children India’ to prioritize the well-being of children in Indian communities and schools.”
“We are extremely grateful to Jet Privilege and Jet Airways for their contribution to Project Nanhi Kali. The campaign has raised awareness about the cause for girl child education and will positively impact the lives of over 200 Nanhi Kalis from underprivileged families. These girls will not only get access to quality education but also receive material support in the form of uniforms, school bags and other school accessories including hygiene material,” said Sheetal Mehta, Trustee & Executive Director, K.C.
