It is our pleasure to share that today, Plan Canada has awarded York House School student Anjali Katta (Gr. 12) with the Top 20 Under 20™ award. The Top 20 Under 20™ program recognizes 20 of Canada’s brightest youth, celebrating their innovation, leadership and achievement in creating positive change.
Anjali founded GirlsCo., a non-profit organization that seeks to educate and inform youth about the issues that women and girls face, while raising money for girls education in developing countries. As part of GirlsCo., she also founded Bombay Pads, a program to deliver sanitary pads and provide sexual education to schools and orphanages in India.
GirlsCo. has hosted various conferences, workshops, and support group discussions on topics such as missing and murdered indigenous women, women in the workplace, and girls’ education in developing countries. Each conference is finished with a call to action to mobilize youth in the quest for gender equality. Anjali was recently selected to advise the work of the Government of Canada through the newly created Girls Advisory Council.
Please join us in congratulating Anjali on receiving this much deserved recognition!
