New Delhi: American singer and actress Mandy Moore is counting the days for a visit to India. The global health advocate will be coming to the country early September to support NGO PSI India’s Gender Based Violence (GBV) Programme Project Wajood.

"Countdown to my India visit #IndiaOnMyMind! Looking forward to working w/ @PSIImpact & @Indranis_Light on #GBV #Sanitation #WomensReproductiveHealth," Moore tweeted to her fans on Monday evening.

Moore, along with Indrani Goradia, philanthropist, women's health and empowerment advocate and founder of Indrani's Light Mission, are special guests of NGO Population Services International (PSI), India.

They will put the spotlight on the fundamental human right of all individuals to live a life free from violence, sources told IANS.

Known for roles in movies such as "Saved", "Tangled", "A Walk to Remember" and "The Princess Dairies", Moore joined PSI in 2008 as an ambassador for its child survival programmes. These are aimed at providing children and their families with the education, products, services and care needed to improve their health and save lives in more than 30 countries around the world.

The 31-year-old has attended Clinton Global Initiative University and became a Young Global Shaper for the World Economic Forum.
