The suit with glass beadwork made for an elegant look, and an apt choice for the social cause. Priyanka Chopra completed the look with silver jhootis and a simple black bindi.
Priyanka Chopra spent a meaningful evening with adolescent girls associated with the Deepshikha Programme that is supported by Unicef and Barclays in Mumbai. Along with the volunteers from Barclays, she was delighted to interact with these bright and spirited young girls who shared their life experiences especially those associated with Deepshikha and their aspirations for the future.
Priyanka Chopra is the Goodwill Ambassador of Unicef and has been supporting the issues of adolescent girls for over eight years, and has a special interest in equipping and empowering girls with relevant life skills.
Unicef launched the Deepshikha Programme guided by a strong conviction that it is imperative to strengthen adolescent and young women’s group through imparting life skill, enterprise skill and networking skill training. Empowerment is the heart and soul of the Deepshikha Programme.
While interacting with the girls, Priyanka Chopra stated, “Girls have the ability to build their own futures. I am glad to be associated with Unicef Deepshikha programme that aims at empowering the young girls of India. My spirit runs parallel to the Deepshikha programme and I strongly advocate that parents, caregivers and educators must give the girls more and more opportunities to grow in their life. I personally feel that our regular efforts in empowering the adolescent girls will contribute to the growth of our country”
This event was an opportunity for the girls to share their experiences with Priyanka Chopra who has been advocating for an overall protective environment for adolescent girls through her visits to many adolescent girls projects across the country.[/tps_footer]
