Inspired by our passion for education, we are delighted to be hosting a free screening of the film Girl Rising on April 11 at 7pm.
Girl Rising is a global campaign for girls’ education and empowerment that aims to show how educating girls can transform societies. The film tells nine stories of nine girls – each one about how education can change the future for girls, their families, communities and entire nations.
“I’m thrilled that the school is offering a free showing of Girl Rising, a film made by an awesome organization dedicated to the education of girls across the world,” said Program Director Lila Rasa Brown.
The mission of Girl Rising is to change the way the world values girls and ensure that girls’ education is part of the mainstream conversation. Educating girls can break cycles of poverty in just one generation, yet millions of girls aren’t in school. Girl Rising uses storytelling to inspire action that gets girls into classrooms worldwide.
“I hope to see you out on April 11! I have a feeling you’ll leave feeling hopeful and inspired,” Lila said.
Whilst the event is free to attend, participants are invited to consider making a contribution after watching the film by donating to this important cause.
