We are very pleased to support project Nanhi Kali because it addresses the basic issue of health and education of underprivileged girl children. The focus of this project aligns very well with one of the principles of our credo: our commitment of responsibility to the communities in which we live and work, and to the world community as well. The implementation of this project is done in a very professional way with passion and commitment. When J&J employees see the smiling faces of little girls, it makes us very happy and proud!

What struck us most about the Nanhi Kali project and Naandi was that in order to get a meaningful education, children need different kinds of learning experiences other than what the school system presently provides. We appreciate their efforts in trying to bridge this gap. We also believe that the greatest good that you can do for another is not just share your riches but reveal to them their own.

By supporting girls in school Nanhi Kali project goes a long way towards empowering women. The impact of an educated girl child will be felt by generations to come. Going to school with out worrying what the teacher will say because the uniform is not proper or because she does not have a pencil, eraser or notebook allows her to focus on what she is learning, making schooling a more enjoyable experience.
