[ May 06, 2014 ]

GirlRising_logoA recent Upper School assembly, sponsored by the Girls Leadership International activity group, brought to the forefront the plight of girls worldwide who are denied education. 

Tara Abrahams, Deputy Director of Girl Rising, a global campaign for girls’ education, was the featured speaker. In addition to explaining Girl Rising’s mission, Tara shared clips from the film, also called Girl Rising, that “journeys around the globe to witness the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world. Viewers get to know nine unforgettable girls living in the developing world: ordinary girls who confront tremendous challenges and overcome nearly impossible odds to pursue their dreams. Prize-winning authors put the girls’ remarkable stories into words, and renowned actors give them voice,” according to the Girl Rising website.
