When girls go to school and get an education, they stay healthy. The save money. They speak up. They build businesses. Then they pass it all on...and poverty declines" (Richard Robbins, the director of Girl Rising)

This is an incredible new film that tells the stories of nine girls from around the world who face - and overcome - unbelievable obstacles on the path toward getting an education. It features narrations by a cast of great actresses such as Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Alicia Keys and others.

The cinematography is stunning and we are really excited to see the film and be involved in a global effort for girls' education.

Come see this amazing film and learn of volunteer opportunities that impact your community and people in need around the world.
