On the occasion of National Teachers Day, Sonam Kapoor today launched the World’s largest Lesson India Programme in Gurgaon. This is a unique initiative which aims to teach every child in India, a lesson about the United Nations Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
The World’s Largest Lesson India initiative will encourage schools across India to teach at least one lesson on the Global Goals, to make sure children are informed, educated and empowered by the commitments their country has made to ending poverty, inequality and climate change by 2030.
Around 250 eminent personalities and Sonam, who is one of the ambassadors of the initiative, gathered at GEMS Academy in Gurgaon, to launch The World’s Largest Lesson India, the India chapter of the programme.

At the event, Sonam said, “The children of today are the leaders of tomorrow. Values and lessons taught early in the childhood can lead to a better understanding and emphasis for a child on his/her future. This is exactly what the World’s Largest Lesson India sets out to do – to engage children in the effort to achieve the UN’s Global Goals by educating them of the challenges impacting their futures and encouraging them to drive change in their own communities. In my capacity as an ambassador, I seek to add further momentum to reach the children of India for this noble cause.”
