“Right now 66 million girls dream of going to school.”
2012 EFA Global Monitoring Report
Girl Rising, a groundbreaking documentary directed by Academy Award nominee Richard Robbins, tells the stories of nine extraordinary girls narrated by an impressive list of talented performers, including Alicia Keys, Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and Selena Gomez.
The film journeys around the globe to witness the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world. It spotlights the stories of unforgettable girls born into unforgiving circumstances, capturing their dreams, voices, and remarkable lives.
Our goal is to share their stories so we can help change the lives of these courageous girls—and girls like them all over the world—so that they can get the opportunities they deserve and break the cycle of poverty and injustice.
