Ingenico supports girl child education programme of Smile Foundation
Smile collaborated with Ingenico in year 2017 with the aim to support academically bright girls from marginalized sections of society. These girls are studying in schools and colleges and are doing well in their studies but because of financial paucity they are always on the edge of dropping out from their studies. In year 2020, the support is extended from 20 to 30 scholars in Mumbai. For these 30 scholars, 14 scholars were continued from last year and 16 new scholars were identified from urban slums of Mumbai.
The projects aims to -
• To provide financial support for the opportunity of furthering education to underprivileged students
• To empower the beneficiaries through life skills & personality development sessions
• To improve the self esteem and confidence level of the beneficiaries through Smile’s interventions
• To develop them as 'Change Agents' and prepare them to become inspiration among their peers in the community
