August 2020 – The last five months have drastically changed our lives, our communities and our world. In many of the places around the world Girl Rising works – places where learners already face barriers in accessing education and reaching their full potential – COVID-19 has drastically compounded the obstacles girls and young women face.
Yet in the midst of collective global upheaval, there are extraordinary, ordinary people standing up with courage, leadership and creativity to support themselves and their communities. The world needs to hear these inspiring stories more than ever!

About Girl Rising:
Girl Rising uses the power of storytelling to change the way the world values girls and their education. Through our original storytelling, media campaigns, and educational tools, we work to ignite change so that girls are free to go to school, stay in school, and pursue a future of their own choosing. The evidence is clear – educating girls and advancing their opportunities transforms families, communities, and entire nations, helping to end cycles of poverty, improve environmental conditions, and increase health, peace and prosperity.
