Irrespective of the sale of its brands from Shiksha, P&G has committed a minimum of Rs. 10 million to CRY.

Shiksha will continue till 30 June and we appeal to all consumers to change more lives by supporting Shiksha, as each P&G product bought will help support one day's education of one child."

CRY regional director Puja Marwaha avers, "Shiksha is enabling lakhs of individuals across the country to participate in the movement for child rights. We are heartened by the number of people that have come forward till date to ensure the right to education for India's children through this initiative. We look forward to more support during the course of this program."
