With Project Blackboard, we want to reinforce our intention to add value to people’s lives and especially to the girl child, who is the key to a happier future for all of us.The campaign aims to highlight the multiplier effect of education for girls and children and the simple joy of giving children learning at school.”

Echoing similar sentiments, Anvesha Sinha, account director of Famous Innovations – the agency behind the concept of the branded film, said: “What is a classroom without the chatter of its young students. That’s the spirit Plum wanted to bring to life with his new #ProjectBlackboard campaign and initiative. The campaign builds on the simple insight that if one girl goes to school, she inspires a hundred others.”
