Super6 Program Mentors 6 Girl Students from Economically Backward Families Every Year #WATWB

Dr. Chandrashekaran and his team mentoring the girl students of the Super6 program.

In the Super6 Program, 6 girl students (from economically weaker backgrounds), studying in the 6th grade are selected every year to be mentored until the time they grow up to find a job. What touched me about the Super6 program is that it’s about being actively involved in educating a girl child, which requires enormous dedication.

Black Money Vs. Hunger

To people who argue that we must tolerate this inconvenience for a few days for a better India, may I please ask if it’s just to ask a little child to tolerate his hunger for a few days? To me, a country’s wellness is not measured by how many black money hoarders are caught red-handed but how many little children have three meals a day.

There, India fails! Not just the Government, but citizens too!
