Arizona Science Center is excited to have the opportunity to screen the film “Girl Rising” on Jan. 25 which highlights the strength of the human spirit and the power that education has to transform societies.
The film chronicles the stories of nine girls from around the world including Shokha in Cambodia, Wadley in Haiti, Suma in Nepal, Yasmin in Egypt, Azmera in Ethiopia, Ruksana in India, Senna in Peru, Mariama in Sierra Leone, and Amina in Afghanistan.
Although women and education are two popular words in today’s society, there are many strides that still need to be taken. According to EFA Global Monitoring Report, there are 65 million girls out of school globally.
This film has sparked a grassroots global action campaign for girls’ education, powered by people from around the world who advocate for equality. Join us for this film and you may feel inspired to spread the message across your community. Reserve your seat now!
