Support Girls’ Education in India
Last month, Shermeen Imam ’16 presented her DeHart Project speech, titled "The Importance of Educating Girls in India," about the state of girls education in India. Her speech focused on the social and economic ramifications that occur when girls in India do not receive the same level of education as boys. Shermeen chose to fundraise for this event because she feels passionate about the right to education. Shermeen's grandfather has created multiple schools, and he has been a contributor to Urdu Girls High School for over ten years: it was one of the first schools in the state of Bihar for girls of the Urdu speaking minority. Watch a short clip from Shermeen’s speech below.
