P&G Shiksha has built and supported more than 330 schools across India and has made a difference to the lives of 50,500 underprivileged children in north India by building and supporting 13 schools.
The P&G Shiksha school here was built in 2003 and in 2010, the number of students was increased from 100 to 300. Noticing the confidence in the children while interacting with them, Irrfan felt that there will be a time soon when an actor bigger than him will emerge from the classroom. "After interacting with the school children, I'm sure that in the future we will have a star bigger than Irrfan Khan from this very classroom," he said. Launched in 2004, P&G India's flagship CSR programme P&G Shiksha has grown immensely with the help of strong support from Bollywood fraternity including Rani Mukerji, John Abraham, Sushmita Sen, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan.
