About Girl Rising
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.
Our 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.
We raise awareness about the issue, inspire action and drive resources to our partners, and together we make change happen.
We do this through film and other tools, such as educational and advocacy videos, screening guides and a free standards-aligned school curriculum.
