Do we take education for granted?

From Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins, Girl Rising journeys around the globe to witness the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world. Girl Rising follows 9 girls from Haiti, Nepal, Ethiopia, India, Egypt, Peru, Cambodia, Sierra Leone, and Afghanistan on their journey to education.

Part of the DC Humanitarian Season, a collaboration with Berlin based NGO Cinema For Peace.

The film Girl Rising has helped to highlight what aid workers have known for years: that educating young women helps them and their communities flourish and succeed.
