Girl Rising uses storytelling to raise awareness and ignite action so that girls everywhere are valued and educated. Our films – and companion resources – explore powerful stories about courageous girls who confront the barriers to their independence, including poverty, child marriage, gender-based violence, domestic slavery, culture and tradition.
Girl Rising’s message of resilience and possibility has captured the imaginations of young people across North America and around the globe spurring students to see beyond their borders, value their education, think critically and believe in their capacity to create change in their lives, their communities, and the world.
Our robust, standards-aligned, flexible educational materials have been used across a range of subjects, grade levels and classroom settings. Whether in the classroom or as part of an extracurricular program, educators can teach directly from the materials, strengthen an existing lesson plan with select resources, or create a stimulating new unit.
