Girl Rising is a global campaign for girls’ education. They use the power of storytelling to paint a picture as to how educating girls can not only transform personal lives but also societies.
This foundation unites girls, women, boys and men throughout the world who believe each girl has the right to go to education and the right to reach her goals in life.
Their mission is to change the way the world values the girl in their respective societies. By bringing awareness to girl’s education to the mainstream consciousness, the hope is to raise girls to a level where they can make a true impact on the world. Awareness is raised through the power of film and other tools, such as educational and advocacy videos, screening guides and a free standards-aligned school curriculum.
