THE CAMPAIGN

From a documentary on the right to education, Girl Rising has grown into a global campaign. Through the powerful tool of storytelling, the campaign unites people across the world who believe that every girl has the right to reach her full potential and live free from fear and oppression. The main focus of the campaign is to get girls into school and help those who are already there to remain, but it also wants girl’s education to become part of mainstream conversation. The film is the campaign’s main tool, but the movement also uses other education and advocacy videos, screening guides and free standards-aligned school curriculums. There are opportunities for teachers, schools and corporations to become involved in the movement and information is available on the website. You can support the work of Girl Rising by purchasing the DVD, visiting the online store, hosting a screening to spread the message, donating directly or hosting a fundraiser.
