Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor, who is Unicef's celebrity advocate, Thursday launched the Child-Friendly School and Systems package here.

The package launched by her is designed to enable children to benefit from child friendly and inclusive learning environments.

"I believe in quality of education," the 33-year-old told reporters here.

"When I visited a child-friendly school in Rajasthan, I was overwhelmed. The classrooms were clean and colourful. Children had a smile on their face. There was activity-based learning too. I wanted to go back to school after seeing all this," she added.

Now she is keen to visit schools in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh too.

"Maybe next month I'll go to schools in Bhopal or Chattisgarh... Wherever I can make a difference," said the "Singham Returns" star.

Kushal Singh, chairperson, National Commission for Protection of Child Rights; Louis Georges Arsenault, representative, Unicef India; and Urmila Sarkar, chief of education, Unicef India were also present at the event that took place at India Habitat Centre here.

Unicef is working with the Indian government to ensure greater access to education, enrolment and improved learning outcomes for children. The focus is to accelerate the shift from Right of Access to Education to Right to Learn and Quality Education.
