Freida's weekend date at White House

Actor Freida Pinto is all excited as she looks forward to her weekend rendezvous at the White House. The actor has been invited to be a part of a meeting with some decision-makers in connection with the Call to Action — Girl Rising campaign. An excited Freida says, “It was fulfilling to know that you are not just making statements on a public platform, but are calling people at large to take action now! It’s shocking to know that 61 million children across the world are still not in school. The goal is to have all children in school by 2015.”

Previously, on April 18, Freida had joined UN Secretary-General Ban Kimoon and World Bank President Jim Yong Kim as part of the campaign at Washington DC. The event saw the premiere of Girl Rising, a film by Academy Awards nominee Richard E. Robbins, which showcases how education transforms girls’ lives around the globe. It tells the stories of girls from Haiti, India, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan, Peru, Cambodia, Egypt, Ethiopia and Nepal, who fought against all odds for their right to receive education.

Freida has also given narration in the film, alongside the likes of Holly biggies Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway and Kerry Washington.
