FLY A KITE FOR A GIRL CHILD

If India enrolled 1% percent more girls in secondary school, their GDP would rise by $5.5 billion. #LETGIRLSLEARN, USAID 2015 

We are committed to the education of the girl child. All proceeds from ticket sales will go towards scholarships for gifted girls to access a world-class education.

P.V Sindhu is the official Festival Face of KITE 2017

Global badminton champion, Telangana State icon and first woman to win a silver medal at the Olympics, P.V Sindhu stands represents the talent, dreams and accomplishments of young Indian women today and is the perfect person to carry the KITE 2017 flag of women’s empowerment through girl child education. 

Support from my family is what got me here,” says Sindhu after an intense training session with her coach Pullela Gopichand. “And that’s why I am happy to be representing KITE 2017, because I hope other girls in India get the support they need to achieve anything they want to achieve, just like I have done. From their parents, their extended families, from schools, teachers and friends.”
