About Girl Rising: The Girls' Education Movement
EDUCATE GIRLS, CHANGE THE WORLD
10 Girls. 10 Countries. 10 Writers. 10 Compelling Stories.
10×10 is a groundbreaking film, a global social action campaign and an extraordinary opportunity: Investing in adolescent girls in the developing world creates a ripple effect of change that transforms families, communities and entire countries for generations.
The film, directed by Academy-Award nominated director Richard Robbins, will explore these young girls lives and the barriers they confront. The action campaign will bring together NGOs, corporations and individuals who share a common commitment to the empowerment of girls and young women around the world.
The payoff is dramatic: educated girls marry later, have fewer and healthier children, and are much more likely to send their own daughters to school. Driving resources to girls is the smartest investment we can make.
