‘Day of the Girl’; 17 young women to be foreign ambassadors for today

17 young women leaders will be taking over as the ambassadors of foreign countries for Thursday, in an event being organised by Plan International, a humanitarian organisation dedicated to child rights and gender equality.

In light of the UN Girl Child Day, the 17 women have been shortlisted for their outstanding leadership skills. The programme which is being held at The Lalit Hotel, will have bollywood actor and Plan India’s patron Anil Kapoor and European Union Ambassador to India Tomasz Kozlowski will be the chief guests.

22 year old Baby Kumari has already led a movement against child marriage and dowry in her village in Bihar while MA student Shalini, 20, has been working for child rights since she was 13.

“It is matter of pride for me as I have come from my village in UP to such a huge platform. I gave tuition to sponsor my schooling. I want to use this platform to raise awareness for education of children,” Shalini said.
