Girl Rising is a global campaign that supports eduction for girls with the belief that education can transform communities across the globe. An educated girl means an educated family and as a consequence an educated community. The Girl Rising mission is to change the way the world values girls. They raise awareness, inspire action and help bring resources to partners to mobilize change. Film and other educational and advocacy videos and a free standards-aligned school curriculum are used to do this. Their main focus is to get girls into school.
It’s not easy being a girl in some parts of the world, often their male family members are prioritized because of cultural and socio-economic reasons. Educating girls can break cycles of poverty in just one generation. Educated girls stand up for their rights, marry and have children later, educate their own children, and as a result their families and communities thrive. Yet millions of girls in the underdeveloped and developing world face barriers to education that boys do not. Removing barriers such as early marriage, gender-based violence, domestic slavery and sex trafficking means not only a better life for girls, but a safer, healthier and better world for all.
The film Girl Rising explores the topic of education and how it can change the world through the stories of 9 girls who overcome insurmountable odds across the globe to pursue their goals. In partnership with USAID, Girl Rising: ENGAGE is taking the film to India, Congo and Nigeria.
