Bollywood's sunshine girl Kareena Kapoor, who also happens to be UNICEF's celebrity advocate, today, launched the Child-Friendly School and Systems (CFSS) package in New Delhi. The said package highlights the need to keep continuous focus on the qualitative aspect of the Right to Education. It has been designed to enable all the children to benefit from child-friendly and inclusive learning environments.

Speaking on this occasion, UNICEF India Celebrity Advocate, Kareena Kapoor said, "I recently visited Rajasthan with UNICEF to see child-friendly schools and to meet some of the girls and boys that are benefitting from these programmes. I was inspired to see spaces which are child-friendly. These are places where children are full of joy when they interact with teachers, where children feel safe and secure and where interactive and creative tools are used to ensure that children are happy and learning."

Kareena Kapoor, who is now very keen on visiting the schools in U.P., M.P. and Chattisgarh, said that she is soon planning to go to schools in these places and make a difference in whatever way possible.
