Every educated girl today, lays the foundation for a better tomorrow
Mother-daughter relationships is the closest of all human relationships, and what makes this relationship undeniably unique is a mother’s exceptional determination and convictionto make her daughter’s life more meaningful andrewarding. In line with this thought, Clinic Plus launched their ‘M se Maa, Maa se Mazbooti’ campaign; reflecting how every daughter gets her strength from her mother and how a motherplays a huge role in her development.With the launch of Clinic Plus’s Scholarship programme 2014, the brand takesanother step towards its commitment toempowermothers by providing scholarship for their daughters’ educationand help themfulfill their dreams.
The initiative mainly aims at enabling mothers to help their daughters study and become a force of strength for them in the future. As per the Educate Girls NGO report, for every 100 girls enrolling in schools in rural India - only 1 reachesclass 12.Another report states that women who complete their secondary education contribute more (15%) to the nation’s economy than men (11%). Keeping these statistics in mind, Clinic Plus aims to reach out to girls in these rural schools and provide them with secondary education, which in turn will reduce the dropout rate and aid them to build a better future.
Through this programme, a girl can enroll from a particular standard (5thto the 12th) and Clinic Plus willtake care of her entire education till the twelfth standard. Now it’s every mother’s responsibility to take the opportunity and help her daughter completesecondary education.
