Girl Rising is a film. Girl Rising is a movement.
Now Girl Rising is a brand new curriculum.
Girl Rising is a groundbreaking film that promotes a powerful truth: educating girls in the developing world can transform families, communities, entire countries – and break the cycle of poverty in just one generation. The Girl Rising curriculum, based around the stories of two of the film’s heroines, teaches students to think critically about issues tied to educ- ating girls, and about their own responsibilities and potential as global citizens.*
ENGAGING LESSONS. INSPIRING PROJECTS. A POWERFUL MESSAGE.
- Students create their own theoretical NGO to support girls, and design a marketing brochure
- Students write poetry, or songs, or create visual art to illustrate the barriers girls face
- Students apply for a hypothetical UN Grant on behalf of girls’ education
