New York, New York – October 12, 2015- Audemars Piguet is proud to support brand ambassador Freida Pinto, international actress and women’s right activist, and her work with Girl Rising India. This past Saturday, October 10, Ms. Pinto hosted the 2015 Global India Fund Gala in Washington D.C., to benefit Girl Rising India’s campaign debut. Girl Rising India is a bold, ambitious social action campaign for girl’s education that is sparking transformative change across India.
By using storytelling, Girl Rising inspires action and gets girls into classrooms across the globe. “As part of the Audemars Piguet family I feel empowered on my mission to change attitudes on how girls are perceived and valued in the world, especially the developing world. With their generous philanthropy, Girl Rising India and her nonprofit partners will continue to tell inspirational and thought provoking real stories of girls who are willing to fight all odds to get an education and unlock their true potential,” Ms. Pinto explained. She added, “This association between Girl Rising and Audemars Piguet is particularly exciting because of our collective belief that long term impact can only be achieved if hearts and minds are made ready for change. Every Audemars Piguet woman, and man across the world should feel proud of the brand they adorn on both an aesthetic and humanitarian level.”
