Mumbai: As part of its corporate social responsibility initiative, Adlabs Cinemas, part of the Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group and Adlabs Films, announced a special initiative to support the cause of literacy of the girl child.
The company has joined hands with Nanhi Kali, an NGO which supports and spreads awareness on the issue of education of the disadvantaged girl child in India. As part of the initiative, Adlabs will introduce a special food combo called the "Classroom Combo" – a certain percentage of the sales of which will be contributed to this cause of nurturing a girl child’s education.

We believe that through education of the girl child we can effectively deal with many of the developmental problems we are facing as a country today. We appreciate the initiative by Adlabs in helping create awareness for the cause and increase funds for our endeavour Nanhi Kali."
