66 million girls can only dream of getting an education.
As the Girl Rising Organization traveled the globe shooting their video documentary, they beautifully captured the powerful energy of the girls who are in school -- their enthusiasm, their spirit, their sheer joy. The pride they take - in their uniforms, in their schools, in their studies -- is infectious, and you won't be able to resist the rhythm of their feet as they walk to school and march into a better future.
Educating girls can break cycles of poverty in just one generation.
Educated girls stand up for their rights, marry and have children later (as adults!), educate their own children, and their families and communities thrive.
Yet millions of girls around the world face barriers to education that boys do not.
Removing barriers such as early marriage, gender-based violence, domestic slavery and sex trafficking means not only a better life for girls, but a safer, healthier and more prosperous world for all.
Get involved to help the 66 million girls achieve their walk towards freedom. girlrising.com
