Priyanka Chopra lends her voice to UN’s Girl Up campaign

Wethinks that’s really sweet of the actor, who has been on a high after winning acclaim for her recently released single Exotic featuring Pitbull

Priyanka Chopra is going a step ahead when it comes to working for a social cause. The Barfi! babe is making use of her fast-expanding pop-culture reach to benefit children across the world. Chopra serves as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and is involved in a number of efforts to protect children’s rights and promote the education of girls in India.

In a recent development, PeeCee has also lent her voice for a ground-breaking documentary film, which is a part of the Girl Rising series. It tells the stories of nine unforgettable girls born into unforgiving circumstances. Apart from this, it also highlights the importance of education to change the world. Slumdog Millionaire actor Freida Pinto also supports it.

Priyanka said, “As a Champion for Girl Up, I am lending my voice to a cause that is very close to me. I come from a country where girls are not treated fairly – many girls are kept out of school, get married at a young age, and don’t have access to health services.” She added, “I am joining Girl Up because I firmly believe in the campaign’s mission, that every girl, no matter where she is born, should grow up safe, healthy and empowered. Every girl should have the opportunity to reach her full potential.”

Now this is one campaign where we totally support Priyanka! Don’t you?
