Mumbai, Aug. 4 -- Kareena Kapoor Khan, who is a celebrity advocate for UNICEF, recently visited underprivileged girls from Jalna district, Maharashtra, and spent the day with them. The actor celebrated Eid with the girls, and was happy to share their life experiences.
A source close to Kareena reveals that she was amazed to visit these kids from the schools and orphanages in that district. "Kareena spent the whole day interacting with these bright and spirited young girls, who shared their experiences, and aspirations for the future with her," says the source.
However, this is not the first time she's made such a visit. Kareena is extremely passionate about empowering adolescents with relevant life skills, asserts the source.
When contacted, Kareena confirms the development, saying, "All the girls I met from Jalna said they wanted to learn more and become teachers, computer engineers or IPS officers. I personally want to spread the word through UNICEF, and urge people to support secondary education for these lovely, beautiful girls," she says.
The actor hopes to do as much as possible to spread awareness for these girls so that they can have a promising future. "I am proud to support a cause I deeply believe in, which is supporting schools, and joyful learning across India. These schools help protect our young girls and help them grow into what we all want to be - bright, intelligent women with a direction and purpose. And I will be doing a lot more through UNICEF, which will enable young girls across India to pursue their dreams," she says.
