Notes de l'éditeur

  • The video demonstrated how big of a cycle this is. Girls in the developing world are too often overlooked, underfed, and undereducated. Of every international aid dollar spent, only 2 cents goes to girls. Women make 10% of the world’s income and own only 1% of property even though they perform 66% of the world’s labor.

    If she can stay in school, fight custom and tradition, and refuse to be married to a strange and older man she can pursue an education and get a job. She would not change only her own fate she would change the fate of her community and perhaps her entire nation.
  • Girl Rising mission is to change the way the world values the girl and ensure that girls’ education is part of the mainstream conversation. The global movement launch's high profile campaigns to bring visibility to the issues girls face and inspire people to dismantle the barriers that hold them back.

  • The documentary tells the stories of nine girls from different parts of the world who face arranged marriages, child slavery, and other heartbreaking injustice. By getting an education, they're able to break barriers and create change.

    Released: March 7, 2013
    Director: Richard E. Robbins
  • Girl Rising ENGAGE is a USAID-supported public-private partnership that aims to to change the way girls are valued, help people understand her worth and share the benefits of educating and empowering her.
  • Education helped Girl Rising become who they are today. But more than 62 million girls around the world are denied the right to an education.
    Girl Rising and Let Girls Learn have come together to raise awareness of the barriers to education that girls are facing.

    Girl Rising is a key partner in the Obama Administration’s commitment to expand access to education for adolescent girls everywhere.

    With that #62milliongirls and #LetGirlsLearn hit social media.
  • Girl Rising has proven to be a powerful catalyst in sparking people all over the United States – and the world – to action.

    Let Girls Learn is a hugely exciting step forward in making a change for girls everywhere.
  • Let Girls Learn and the Obamas have done a great job leveraging their power in order to recruit the help of government agencies, private institutions (you can see Silicon Valley has their hands in Let Girls Learn) and of course Non-Profits. I want to emphasize the efforts of Peace Corps because without them, LGL would not be possible. They have thousands of trained volunteers working on new and or existing programs in over 60 different countries around the world.
  • LGL has achieved quite a lot of success in the year or so they’ve been around. Some of these successes include” 25 new public schools in Jordan (70% of which will be girl schools) … $70 million towards new and ongoing programs in Pakistan that emphasize girls education … and lastly a partnership with the Japanese government that dedicated $340 million to gender sensitive education programs in Japan. A more complete outline of their achievements can be seen on letgirlslearn.gov.
  • Different ways of contributing to this movement.
  • LGL has also done a great job with getting celebrity endorsements… Some examples include Alicia Keys, Tyler Perry, Missy Elliot Denise Richards, Meryl Streep and more.

  • This graph shows the activity of #LetGirlsLearn from Nov 12, 2016 to Nov 17, 2016. I want to conclude the presentation by highlighting the fact that movements advocating for girls education have been in existence for a long time, but with the recent launch of let girls learn and the backing of the Obamas, these movements have been tremendously more successful in achieving their goals and being present in the mainstream conversation
