Gender does not define potential. Girl Rising India’s newest campaign, #WeDreamWeRise, help us visualize exactly that. The campaign is currently seeing amazing traction on social media and is playing widely in cinema halls and on television channels across India.

Why does it matter? Far too often, girls and women are disproportionately affected by issues like lack of access to educational opportunities.

Want to get involved?

 Think about how your own opportunities and role models help you understand the amazing potential of a gender equal world. Consider how education can bring one closer to achieving their dreams.

Write your dream for yourself - or for India’s girls - on your palm and take a photo of yourself. Post the photo on social media and make sure to tag #WeDreamWeRise when you share your image.

When girls are educated, families and communities thrive – educated girls grow up to have healthier children, whose children are also more likely to be educated and healthy.

We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
