JLL India, on the occasion of Diwali, has partnered with Project Nanhi Kali to fund the annual primary education of over 325 girl children from economically disadvantaged families in India. The firm is going to deploy the fund previously earmarked for client and employee gifting towards improving the lives of these underprivileged children.
JLL India will provide academic material to enable girl children to access quality education and attend school with dignity, and also the required social support to reduce the chances of them dropping out, the official statement said.
“We came across Project Nanhi Kali, and the idea of celebrating Diwali by bringing the light of education to the underprivileged girls collectively appealed to us.” said Ramesh Nair, CEO & Country Head- JLL India.
JLL India, while joining hands with Project Nanhi Kali targets an extra shred of happiness to these underprivileged children.
Project Nanhi Kali, currently provides education to over 130,000 underprivileged girl children across 12 states of India and believes that education is the single most powerful intervention for transforming lives.
