Girl Rising spotlights the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change a girl – and the world. Many millions of girls face barriers to education that boys do not. We can help break those barriers by bringing global attention to the enormous benefits of educating girls. Backed by Intel, CNN Films and many well-known actors/activists, this film documents the lives of nine girls around the world, two of whom live in communities where World Vision works. Spread the word…educating a girl is an important component in breaking the cycle of poverty and changing the world! For more info on the film, visit girlrising.com
