Footballer Robin Singh takes up the cause of Women Empowerment

Footballer Robin Singh celebrated the spirit of Indian women in Bangalore, on the eve of International Women’s Day. He joined fifteen spirited girls of Smile Foundation who were striving to make an identity of their own although they had come from difficult backgrounds.

Robin was enthralled to join the cause. “We must enable the women in our society to understand their real worth and equip them with the power of equality. I feel that male involvement is imperative in women empowerment. All these girls symbolize the spirit of ‘living your dream’ as they have got the right platform and support. I wish them the very best and I hope they become a force to reckon with,” said Robin Singh, the ace forward of Bengaluru FC.

All the girls were from Smile Twin e-Learning Programme (STeP) SAMA centre in Bangalore. 70 girls are living their dreams at this all-girls centre.

Commenting on this occasion Mr. Vikram Singh Verma, COO, Smile Foundation said, “Smile Foundation strongly believes that when you empower women, a whole generation is empowered. We have a long way to go in this direction and we can only achieve it by involving all sections of the civil society.” He added, “I would like to thank Mr. Robin Singh who came forward and supported the cause. I believe that we all can inspire changes in our own way this Women’s Day.”
