Bringing the power of stories to the DRC, India & Nigeria!

We’ve always used the power of storytelling to change the way the world values girls.

Now, with the support of USAID, the Intel Corporation, Vulcan Productions, and a number of private donors, Girl Rising’s ENGAGE (Empowering Next Generations to Advance Girls’ Education) project is taking these stories to some of the places in the world where it is most difficult to be a girl.

Places where our stories can help people do two very important things: imagine a different future for girls and believe that everyone has an important role in helping them rise.

In each ENGAGE country, customized local language versions of the Girl Rising film are being used to raise awareness about the positive benefits that come when girls are educated and ignite community-led change in cities, towns and villages across our target countries.

This innovative multi-year effort aims to create a better world by:

  • Increasing awareness of and attention to the importance of a good education and the barriers girls often face.
  • Mobilizing men, women and youths to take concrete actions to help girls attain quality primary and secondary education.
  • Engaging cultural influencers, corporate and government leaders to build an enabling environment for girls, promoting policy change and financial investment in their education.
