Jalandhar, July 12

15 underprivileged girls have registered for the “I’m Also Malala” scheme. The scheme was started by the CT Group of Institutes in 2017 with the aim to provide free education to girl students who cannot afford to study in schools.

Principal CT Public School, Dr Suresh Sharma said, “Our school believes that when we educate girls, we are not only educating them individually but also empowering them and giving them an opportunity to earn for themselves. This is for the second year that the school is successfully running the Malala programme by the name “I’m also Malala”, advocating every girl’s right to free, safe and quality education.”

He further said, “More than 3 lakh rupees have been spent in providing help and support required to continue their education. Not only this, the project also protects girl child from child marriages, trafficking and eradication of illiteracy and also aims to provide good quality education to women.

From this unique project, deprived girl child gets timely education material support, uniforms, shoes, dictionaries and school bags etc.”
