To contribute towards improving the quality of education and encourage more children to stay in school, Bollywood actor Soha Ali Khan recently taught children for a day, in Kolkata.

As part of an education campaign, Soha turned teacher and involved the children in some interactive learning by implementing several fun tactics. She even painted a wall of the school to help complete the ongoing construction activities.

“I truly believe that education is the basic right of every child and it’s heartening to see movements like these facilitating education for underprivileged children and helping them realise their dreams and providing them a better standard of living,” says the 35- year- old.

Soha adds that with 42% rural areas in India still not having access to primary schools and 30% of primary schools not having proper toilets, infrastructure is a key issue in schools across the country. During her visit, she also engaged kids in a rapid fire round on a wide range of subjects.
