One million pledges achieved in 2013 and now…
In Support of the Girl Child!
The Girl Pledge Campaign 2013 was a stirring and deeply motivating campaign that touched over a million lives in India through active volunteerism. People of all ages and from all walks of life committed, during the magical months of the campaign, to work towards a better life for the Girl Child.
