Hers was the first door I knocked on when I became a #TeamBalika volunteer for @educategirlsngo before lockdown. It was a proud moment stepping into their shoes, being aligned to their purpose of sending every girl in their village back to school. #EducateGirls is working in India’s most rural, remote areas to bridge the gender and #literacygap. They have helped enroll 750,000 girls in school and improved learning outcomes for over 1.3 million children till date. #backtoschool #DayoftheGirl #genderequality."
