” One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world”- Malala Yousufzai
And, tell me isn’t that the most essential truth that we all are bound by? Isn’t it, the most basic fibre of all dreams? Mostly, isn’t it the reason of a bright future as well? Teaching & imparting knowledge are nothing but interchangeable factors that eradicate the vices of ignorance.

In a world as fast paced as ours, there isn’t even a scintilla of doubt that education is the most basic & the most valued skill that is needed to survive in this world.

What was the agenda of Fashion For A Cause?
This Curated Label Fashion event, showcased some versatile creations by designers Khanijo Official, Vidhi Vadhwani Label, Paridhi Jaipuria and House of Three. The show “Fashion For A Cause” was a fundraiser in support of Teach for change. We saw celebrities like Ragini Dwivedi, Behram Siganporia, etc., come across and show their support to the cause.
We had Dr. Shubha Address the gathering & talk about how education is one of the most essential skills for a person to develop a better version of themselves & how we all can be an active part of the movement.
I had the pleasure to interact with these celebrities regarding their ideologies and here’s what they said ;
” I’ve always struck chord with things that are directed towards uplifting our society. Teach for change, is one such cause which asks for your time & knowledge. You can still uplift India just by volunteering, your funds are welcomed but it’s you who is the change.” – Ragini Dwivedi
” I’ve been someone who has understood the value of education and my mother was one of my biggest supports into sculpting me into who i am today. She always encouraged me to pursue my passion. Teach for change, is exactly that.. it helps these children find their goals by sculpting them into independent individuals”- Behram Siganporia
The event was an extremely enriching one, with us being motivated to Teach For Change & Be the Change.
