WATConsulthas launched a CSR activity titled#That’sMyGirl as a part of its 10thanniversary celebrations.With this initiative, WATConsult is looking to aid the education and hygiene necessities for girls in the primary section (Class 1 to 5) and donate a minimum of Rs10lakh to the renowned NGO Nanhi Kali.


For the cause, WATConsult has partnered with Ketto, the leading fundraising portal, leading insurance company Bajaj Allianz, stem-cell bankBabyCell and stationary brand Kokoyu Camlin to promote the campaign across digital platforms, create awareness and raise funds.


WATConsult has built a microsite to highlight and share the current insights on the state of girl education in India. The site will showcase video bytes from established women leaders across various fields, proud parents of a girl child, management of Dentsu Aegis Network, Kunal Kapoor along with brand partners will support the campaign and voice their concerns, perceptions and suggest solutions around the cause.


To conclude the activity on National Girl Child Day, on January 24, they will raise funds via a Twitter campaign. WATizens, Twitterati and brands will come together to promote the causeby using the hashtag #ThatsMyGirl and cite opportunities andaccomplishments of a girl child. For each ‘hashtag mention’, WATConsult will donateRs 10 to Nanhi Kali.


Speaking on the same, Rajiv Dingra, Founder and CEO, WATConsult, said, “In many parts of India, the arrival of a baby girl still calls for mourning rather than celebration and that’s indeed sad. We would like to build awareness around this cause and support girl child education via our initiative. We look forward to achieve atleast 1,00,000 mentions and contribute 10 lacs to Nanhi Kali.”


Sharing his views Ashish Bhasin, Chairman and CEO – South Asia, Dentsu Aegis Network said, “Gender equality is one of the most important priorities for us at Dentsu Aegis Network. This can be enabled only if the girl child is educated. I am glad WATConsult has taken the initiative of #ThatsMyGirl as a part of their 10th anniversary celebrations.”
