Girl Rising works with a host of non profit partners around the world. Some we have formal relationships with and others we work with in a less formal way.
We selected a set of seven “Impact” Partners when we were making the film. These partners were widely viewed to have best-practice programs serving girls around the world. They committed to hosting our film team in one of the countries they operate in. In addition, they were complementary in their approach to interventions on behalf of girls. For example, CARE serves girls and women generally, while Room to Read is a literacy-focused organization. This was important because getting girls into school, keeping them there, and making sure they learn relies on a holistic approach that includes life-skills training, health training, the provision of safe-spaces, as well as traditional academic training.
These seven initial non-profit impact partners are: A New Day Cambodia, CARE, Partners in Health, Plan International USA, Room to Read, United Nations Foundation/Girl Up, and World Vision. We also arranged for audience donations from 2013 - 2015 to go to a 501©3 Fund, The Girl Rising Fund, then distributed to these non-profit partners. These organizations also have the opportunity to incorporate the film into their programming and fundraising efforts as they see fit.
Girl Rising also has formal partnerships with a number of NGOs for our work around the world. These include Save the Children, Study Hall Foundation, IMA World Health, HPP-Congo, Discovery Learning Alliance, UNICEF, Brooklyn South School District and others.
All of our NGO partners have an enthusiasm for the collaborative spirit of Girl Rising and are open to building a coalition of support for girls that includes other Girl Rising NGO partners, Girl Rising corporate partners, Girl Rising policy leaders and grassroots distribution partners.
