The actor has also been actively associated with UNICEF as an ambassador, and often visits various parts of the world to encourage girl child education.

“Priyanka has also received a lot of love from her fans in Bangladesh. In her role as ambassador earlier this year, she met Syrian and Rohingya refugees despite a packed schedule. In 2017, she visited child victims of sexual violence in Zimbabwe, with her strong social voice making a huge impact at the Annual General Debate of the United Nations General Assembly... This has struck the right chord with people around the world,” the source says.
