During this festive season, Covestro (India) aims to give one more reason to celebrate with #Stem4GirlsFestival2018 by involving over 3000 girl students across India in science experiments and interaction.
On this occasion, Mr. Ajay Durrani, MD, Covestro (India) highlighted how important educating a girl child is, “Science is the key in finding sustainable solutions in every industry and in various economic and social challenges faced by the world. Hence, our target is to popularize STEM4Girls to potentially create a platform to build a career for these young girls. We want all these students to be curious, courageous and colourful while they take this leap in life, as these are also the core values that Covestro practises.”
“It is such a pleasure to be working with Covestro again this year on our greenlight for girls initiatives in India. Together – along with the Nehru Science Centre & Chandra Mohan Foundation, we will be inspiring more than 3,000 girls to continue their studies in STEM. We work around the globe to do the same – and these girls will then be a part of our global greenlight for girls network in which we aim to continue to guide and inspire them for their future.”, Melissa Rancourt, Founder and Board Chairman of Greenlight for Girls.
