Statement from Kajal Aggarwal
“I am thrilled to be the Goodwill Ambassador of an organization that has such a compelling and visionary mission. I am looking forward to play my role in creating a platform for every child”, said Ms. Kajal Aggarwal.
“I have a chance to make a real difference towards ensuring that our children have access to quality educational resources and I am going to do my best. To serve as Dexterity’s Goodwill Ambassador is truly humbling and I am committed to playing my role in creating greater access for children and reaching all opportunities to them.” added the newly appointed Goodwill Ambassador.
Statement from the Dexterity Founder and CEO
“It’s an honor and a privilege to welcome the celebrated actress on board. Dexterity stands for two things: innovation and democratization; and so will our goodwill ambassador. Kajal will redefine how celebrities can leverage their fan base to achieve greater democratization of educational opportunities and resources.” stated Sharad Vivek Sagar, the Founder and CEO of Dexterity Global.
“I would put it simply, and more so, because Kajal is from the movie industry herself. Look at the number of children who know when the next movie is going to be released. And, look at the number of students who know about the upcoming national and international educational opportunities from their own area of interest. You will know the difference.
Our children don’t miss out on opportunities because they aren’t good enough. It’s because they aren’t connected enough and aware enough (of those opportunities).” added the globally followed young entrepreneur and visionary thought leader.
“For a change, people will see an actor connecting them to opportunities than just their own day-to-day life.”
