We at World Peace Promoting Helpless People Organization NGO West Bengal are paying homage to a great children’s advocate as she begins another year in her life’s journey.
May her life be blessed as she has blessed so many over the years. She has taken her success as an actress and used it to gain awareness and help for others. Born August 5th, 1974.
Kajol has been actively involved in several philanthropic endeavours related to women and children. According to her, “every child deserves education”, as “education is the basis of society.”
In 2008, she was awarded with the KarmaveerPuraskaar, for her contribution in the field of social service. Kajol is involved with Shiksha, an NGO that works in the field of children’s education.
In 2009, she launched the Shiksha 2009 campaign, to support the cause.
In 2011, Kajol participated in a fashion show organised by the Cancer Patients Aid Association, to generate funds for the organisation.
Kajol is the International Goodwill Ambassador and patron of The Loomba Trust — a charity organisation devoted to supporting widows and their children around the world, particularly in India.
Speaking about the issue, she said: “It’s sad to know that widows are still considered a blight in our society. There are widows who are still not marriageable. I strongly feel for them and take it as a social responsibility to eradicate the issue.”
In 2012, Kajol was appointed as the brand ambassador of Pratham, a charity organisation for children.
She featured in a short film about education and literacy, with the children of Hanuman Basti Primary School in Mumbai, for the organisation.
Every year, two million children fail to reach their fifth birthday because of diseases like diarrhea and pneumonia. So ‘Help A Child Reach 5‘ campaign is to help more children reach their fifth birthday.
To help in this mission she joined by Lifebuoy which is to spread the importance of good hand-washing habits around the world.
We hope you will join us in wishing her goodwill in the years ahead …
