“This film delivers hope: reasonable, measurable, tangible hope that the world can be healed and helped to a better future!” Meryl Streep
Travel the globe to meet nine unforgettable girls – striving beyond circumstance, pushing past limits. Their dreams, their voices, their incredible stories are captured in a film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world.
Girls featured include Ruksana, an Indian pavement-dweller whose father sacrifices his own basic needs for his daughter’s dreams; Sokha, an orphan who rises from a life in a Cambodian landfill to become a star student and accomplished dancer; and Suma, who writes songs to help her endure forced servitude in Nepal and today crusades to liberate others.
More than a film, GIRL RISING is the heart of a movement that is spreading around the world promoting this powerful truth: Educating girls in the developing world can transform families, communities, entire countries and break the cycle of poverty in just one generation.-
