Mumbai: Bollywood veteran actress Raveena Tandon who is also a social activist has extended support to She’s Ambassador campaign and feel that it is very important to educate women to deal on issues related to their health and sanitation.

The initiative is a joint effort by PVR Nest and Mumbai Obstetrics and Gynaecological Society (MOGS).

Raveena, who also features in a film for the campaign, said in a statement: “She’s Ambassador is a CSR (corporate social responsibility) campaign to create awareness among young girls in the country, as these girls face many issues with regard to their health when they reach puberty.

“It is very important to educate them to deal on issues related to their health, sanitation, nutrition and mental well-being. I am very grateful to PVR Nest for giving me this opportunity to be part of a campaign of this nature which is very close to my heart.”

The year-long campaign enables school girls to become ‘health champions’ for their peers and the community. It hopes to sensitise 10,000 school children in 50 schools through 100 workshops.

It will address the hidden concerns of adolescents, make health education and safe learning accessible to young girls, educate on health planning, influence social and economic integration of adolescents, provide youth counselling services and promote health policies and best hygiene practices.
