Delhi DareDevils and UNICEF 'Dare To Care'



In India, almost 20 million adolescent girls (14- 17 years) are out of school. Around 42 per cent of girls in India marry before the legal age of 18 years. 56 per cent of adolescent girls are anaemic and vulnerable to poor maternal health.

Girls' education is one of the best investments that India can make for its people and its future. An educated girl tends to marry later and have fewer children. The children she have will be more likely to survive, better nourished and better educated.In India, almost 20 million adolescent girls (14- 17 years) are out of school.

UNICEF India and Delhi Daredevils have come together to help empower girls in India. The partnership aims to support the efforts to protect millions of adolescent girls still facing obstacles in their lives by experiencing various forms of discrimination, exploitation and abuse on account of their age and their sex.

Dare to Care is an effort to help focus on issues related to empowering girls with education, which will further give them the courage to say no to an early marriage and the power to take decisions which directly impacts their lives.

Delhi Daredevils will help spreading awareness through their franchise, the squad and the ever loyal fans. Some percentage from IPL ticket and merchandise sales will go into ‘Dare To Care’ funds. Some Daredevils memorabilia will be put up for auction and funds will be used in this campaign.
