Supported the education of 50 underprivileged children
Actor Rajeev Khandelwal was the ambassador for Smile Foundation at the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon. The actor commenced his ambassadorship by supporting the education of 50 beneficiaries of Smile Foundation as his individual social responsibility. A day before the main event Rajeev personally visited the educational projects of Smile Foundation, to spend time and interact with the kids. The children were thrilled with Rajiv’s presence. The actor interacted and motivated the kids to continue their studies and achieve what they aspire to be. Rajeev was very happy to see the confidence of the children, and congratulated Co-Founder and Executive Trustee of Smile Foundation – Mr. Santanu Mishra for doing this great job.
Along with Rajeev Khandelwal, corporate like Air France, Fasttrax Restaurant, Mirch Media, and colleges like IIT Delhi, Delhi School of Professional Studies and Research (DSPSR) and SRM University also supported Smile Foundation in the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon. This was the second time when Smile Foundation participated in the marathon with an aim to sensitize maximum number of people for the cause of education. Reebok India also associated with Smile Foundation for Airtel Delhi Half Marathon and provided fitness gear for the event.
Rajeev Khandelwal supported Smile Foundation to influence more and more people to bring the needed change in the lives of underprivileged children. Talking about his support the actor stated “I understand my social responsibility as an individual and compulsory education of children is the cause that I really connect with. I say so because education is the only solution to all kinds of social evils in our country and it still continues to be the biggest challenge to overcome.”
Smile Foundation acknowledges Rajeev’s gesture towards his individual social responsibility for spreading a few Smiles.
