A FILM Girl Rising is a groundbreaking feature film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to transform societies. The film presents the remarkable stories of nine girls around the world, told by celebrated writers and voiced by renowned actors. We use powerful storytelling to deliver a simple, critical truth: Educate Girls and you will Change the World.
A MOVEMENT Girl Rising is a grassroots global action campaign for girls’ education, powered by girls, women, boys and men around the world who stand for equality. Millions have seen the film and are spreading its message across campuses and communities of all kinds - raising both awareness and funds. Girl Rising partners with established nonprofit organizations that drive donations to programs that help girls get in school and stay in school.
THE FUTURE Girl Rising works to identify ways that world leaders can support and protect girls. For every girl to reach her full potential, new policies must be enacted and enforced. The first step to becoming an advocate is to educate yourself about the issues. Seeing the film is a good start, and there are lots of other small and large ways you can make a difference.
