Girl Rising uses storytelling to inspire action that gets girls into classrooms worldwide. Educating girls can break cycles of poverty in just one generation, yet millions of girls aren’t in school.
When girls are educated, communities thrive and economies grow. Yet, an estimated 62 million girls are not in school, and millions more are fighting to stay there.
When girls are educated, they gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to break the cycle of poverty.
An educated girl will marry later, have fewer, healthier children, and will earn more money that she can re-invest in her family and community.
Girl Rising is a global campaign for girls’ education. We use the power of storytelling to share the simple truth that educating girls can transform societies.
Girl Rising unites girls, women, boys and men who believe every girl has the right to go to school and the right to reach her full potential.
The Girl Rising mission is to change the way the world values the girl.
Everything we do is to ensure that girls’ education is part of the mainstream conversation and raise awareness about the issue, inspire action and drive resources to our partners, and together we make change happen.
Girl Rising do this through film and other tools, such as educational and advocacy videos, screening guides and a free standards-aligned school curriculum.
Girl Rising are focused on getting girls in school and are launching in India, the Democratic Republic of Congo and West Africa in partnership with USAID.
