Access to education, comprehension and uninterrupted learning are crucial for under-privileged children to hope for a brighter future. Ensuring education for all, ‘Shiksha Na Ruke’ initiative of Smile Foundation aims at bringing dropped-out children back to school and enabling uninterrupted learning through access to resources needed for their education.

“I am overjoyed to team up with an organisation like Smile Foundation that is reaching out to children and women across rural India and helping them grow. As a sportsperson, I motivate children to dream big and have faith in the power of education," Dahiya said.

Dahiya has been an Asian and world champion wrestler and an Olympic medalist. He won the gold medal in the Men's Freestyle 57 kg category in the recently held Commonwealth Games 2022.
