Swabhiman scholars visit Avery Dennison
Members of the Women’s Forum at Avery Dennison invited Smile Foundation's girl scholars to their Gurugram office for a special session called “Found My Voice”. The session was aimed at enhancing the self-confidence of the girls and encouraging them to face their fears. Both the mentors and their young students had a great time participating in interesting activities and games together.
Identified from slums around Delhi, these exceptionally talented girls have been awarded the merit-based Swabhiman scholarship to complete their schooling and higher studies. They are all first generation learners, with their parents engaged as domestic help, drivers, street vendors and daily wagers.
