A Call to Action

We know that educating girls is the smartest investment of our time. When girls are educated, communities thrive and economies grow. Yet 62 million girls are missing from classrooms worldwide, and tremendous opportunities are lost.

Join the Girl Rising community and become a champion for girls’ education. Use your voice and talent to help us create meaningful change: spread the message, raise funds, and rally your community to advocate for policies supporting girls' education.

Now is the time.
Educate Girls, Change the World


Bring Girl Rising to school

Social studies, geography, economics … how can Girl Rising fit in your school? Girl Rising’s dynamic stories will lead students to discover a stimulating world beyond their borders. It’s all there - the Educator’s Edition DVD and Teacher’s Guide. Combine that with a teacher’s imagination and magic happens.

Limited time free preview

Educators can preview the first 30 minutes of the film or just the Suma’s story, one of the Meet the Writer videos, and sample pages from the Teacher’s Guide.
