Read on to find out how you can join us on March 7 for what will be an incredibly inspiring night!
Girl Rising journeys around the globe to tell the stories of unforgettable girls born into unforgiving circumstances like Sokha, an orphan who rises from the dumps of Cambodia to become a star student and an accomplished dancer; Suma, who composes music to help her endure forced servitude in Nepal and today crusades to free others; and Ruksana, an Indian “pavement-dweller” whose father sacrifices his own basic needs for his daughter’s dreams.
We guarantee that you will be moved… you will be inspired.
A portion of Girl Rising ticket sales will help fund girls’ programs, so seeing the film literally makes an impact on girls’ lives. YOU IN?
