Audemars Piguet is helping support Freida Pinto, one of the celebrated watchmaker’s most recently appointed brand ambassadors, with a gala in support of her work with Girl Rising India. On October 10, Pinto hosted the 2015 Global India Fund Gala in Washington D.C.,to benefit Girl Rising India’s campaign debut. Girl Rising seeks to support girl’s education through social action across India.
“As part of the Audemars Piguet family I feel empowered on my mission to change attitudes on how girls are perceived and valued in the world, especially the developing world. With their generous philanthropy, Girl Rising India and her nonprofit partners will continue to tell inspirational and thought provoking real stories of girls who are willing to fight all odds to get an education and unlock their true potential,” said Pinto. “This association between Girl Rising and Audemars Piguet is particularly exciting because of our collective belief that long term impact can only be achieved if hearts and minds are made ready for change. Every Audemars Piguet woman, and man across the world should feel proud of the brand they adorn on both an aesthetic and humanitarian level.”
