John, Soha pledge support for child education

Bollywood actors John Abraham and Soha Ali Khan have pledged their support to P&G’s Shiksha campaign, which aims to provide education to underprivileged children.

I have always been a firm believer in the cause of education and Shiksha has given me a platform to bring my dream of an India where every child goes to school, an India with 100 percent Shiksha. I pledge my support to the vision of 100 percent Shiksha for India and I urge more participation.

John said in a statement.

Both Soha and John have urged people to support P&G’s vision of 100 percent Shiksha by buying P&G products such as Tide, Pantene and Olay and helping the company channelize part of the sales proceeds towards education for underprivileged children.

I hail from the small town of Pataudi in Haryana and this year I pledge to take an active role in spreading the word of Shiksha in my town and help the children there access their basic right to education.

said Soha.
