Special Event with Q&A – Monday 25th April at 7pm

Posted: 15th April 2016

A girl’s self-worth, confidence and power should radiate from within and when her potential is fully realized, the world is transformed.

Empowering young girls to become powerful agents of change is a critical global need, as proven by a UN Woman study which stated that “50% of the economic growth in OECD countries over the past 50 years” was due in large portions to girls’ increased access to higher levels of education.

Girl Rising is a global campaign for girls’ education, which uses the power of storytelling to share the truth that educating girls can inform societies. Empowering a girl through education breaks the cycle of generational poverty and Girl Rising ensures that girls’ education is part of the mainstream conversation.

Join us for this special screening of this film – a grassroots Indian collaboration that has produced not only a documentary but also a global movement. We will have a Q&A discussion panel to go with this event featuring women working in the wider field of gender empowerment or who are simply inspiring women.

It promises to be an inspiring evening with a powerful message.
