Girl Rising in Nepal: a girl, a writer, a powerful story.

Celebrate International Day of the Girl with Girl Rising on October 11! Go to http://girlrising.com/idg for inspiration and information.

Girl Rising is a film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world. Here, watch Suma's story of being bonded into labor at age 6 and how she now uses her hard-won education to help free other girls. Meet acclaimed author Manjushree Thapa who wrote Suma's story for the film, and learn about the devastating practice of "kamlari," or bonded labor that is, in effect, modern day slavery. (for the complete film: http://girlrising.com.)

Girl Rising promotes a powerful truth: educating girls will change the world. Join Girl Rising and stand with girls around the world on International Day of the Girl. Sign up at http://girlrising.com/idg.

Girl Rising is a film. Girl Rising is a movement. Girl Rising is what the future for girls can be.
