About Us

What is Girl Rising?


Girl Rising is a global campaign for girls’ education.

We use the power of storytelling, leveraged through partnerships, to share the simple truth that educating girls can transform societies.

Girl Rising unites girls, women, boys and men who believe every girl has the right to go to school and the right to reach her full potential.


Our mission is to change the way the world values the girl.

The film, behind-the-scenes videos, advocacy trailers and a free standards-aligned school curriculum are designed to raise awareness and inspire individuals to take action.
