STORYLINE:

UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador David Beckham travelled to India this week to meet children and adolescents, including girls who are bringing about change and innovation in their communities, and young women who have overcome barriers to help close gender gaps.

During his four-day visit, including to the western Indian state of Gujarat, Beckham saw first-hand how UNICEF-supported programmes are making a difference for girls and women, in partnership with the Government of India.

In Banaskantha district in Gujarat, Beckham met with community workers, government officials and activists who help children continue their schooling and empower them to say no to child marriage and child labour.

Beckham met young innovators and entrepreneurs at the Vikram Sarabhai Children Innovation Centre in Gujarat University. A first of its kind for children in India, the Centre was set up to promote innovations by children and young people, especially girls.

UNICEF works with the Government of India to invest in girls’ education and opportunities that boost their confidence and skills and help them become the next generation of entrepreneurs and leaders.

The COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated gender inequalities in South Asia. An increase in domestic violence, child marriage and loss of paid work and employment impacted girls and women who continue to bear the brunt of longer-term socio-economic shocks experienced in the region.
