On International Day of the Girl Child, Mumbai Smiles Founder and General Director Jaume Sanllorente, spoke to DNA in length about PM Modi’s Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao campaign, the general attitude towards women, and why gender equality will not happen in this lifetime
What is Mumbai Smiles doing on the International Day of the Girl Child?
In Spain, we are launching a campaign called GIRL, where we want to focus on how life is different if you are born as a girl child. Our campaign has already received support and collaboration from numerous other organisations and production companies, as well as public figures in Spain (such as the top model Veronica Blume and the actress Leticia Dolera). According to many reputed sources, India is one of the worst countries in the world for the girl child. Thus the campaign is very much relevant and important here as well. We receive multiple donations from Spain which is why we’re launching the campaign here, so that the funds accumulated can benefit our projects in India.
