Sonam Kapoor Launches ‘World’s Largest Lesson’, Aims To Educate Every Single Child In India


Sonam Kapoor is changing the world, one social initiative a time. According to an IANS report, Sonam Kapoor has joined Gems Education, UNICEF, Reliance Group and the Global Goals Campaign to launch the World’s Largest Lesson India programme on the occasion of Teacher’s day.

“The Worlds’ Largest Lesson India” is a unique initiative that will aim to teach every child in India – nearly 360 million – a lesson about the United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development.

According to Sonam, proper education can build a great future and lead a child to imbibe good qualities.

“If you are more fortunate than others, it’s better to build a longer table than a taller fence”

The programme that was launched in September 2015, lessons have taken place in 160 countries. The materials for the programme included lesson plans, comic books and an animated film that was introduced by Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, tennis champion Serena Williams and international football star Neymar Jr.

Talking at the occasion, Sonam further added how now she’s planning to finish her under graduation at the age of 30. She also said that not being to complete her schooling will remain one of her biggest regrets:

“I am somebody who is very regretful of the fact that I didn’t finish my school after 12th grade. I went to university and I am trying to finish that right now. At the age of 30, I am trying to finish my under grade,”

Listing out the responsibilities of an actor, Sonam further added,

“I feel that films like ‘Neerja’ and ‘Khoobsurat’ were very inspiring. It was entertaining and engaged you. I think that simple ideas and simple messages are so effective that if told in a simpler way, it can be more entertaining. It will create an impact on young people.”
