Skating to #EducateTheGirlChild

A unique and interesting partnership between Project Nanhi Kali and Titan Company Limited recently concluded an exciting 90-day skating journey leading to sponsorship of educational support to over 11,400 girls studying in primary school across 9 states in India.  

Rana Uppalapati, a second-generation Titan business associate and an international skater completed his mission titled ‘Titan ECHO’ (Educate to Carry Her Onwards) on December 19th, 2018. With the aim to ‘Educate to Carry Her Onwards’, Rana’s initiative involved skating 6000 kilometres across the Golden Quadrilateral of India. On his 3-month journey, Rana raised over 4 crores and created awareness on girl child education and child safety along the way. The campaign came to an end on December 19th, 2018 with a closing ceremony in Bengaluru.
