Kareena Kapoor launches UNICEF Child-Friendly Schools and Systems Package in New Delhi, on Thursday, September 4, 2014.
Kareena Kapoor told reporters at the event: “When I visited a child-friendly school in Rajasthan, I was overwhelmed. The classrooms were clean and colourful. Children had a smile on their face. There was activity-based learning too. I wanted to go back to school after seeing all this.”
She added: “My mother used to wake me up at 6 a.m. for school. I would tell her to give me one more hour to sleep. I thought I had the pressure of carrying a heavy bag. I would even sleep a bit in class. I wasn’t given much attention because I was an average student.”
