Storytelling is the heart of Girl Rising’s Education Programs.

Our stories help build understanding and empathy. They are engaging and powerful ways to explore issues around rights, equity, and the value of education. Girl Rising uses stories to introduce activities and spark conversations. Our stories help build voice, agency, and gender-equitable attitudes in millions of adolescents. They help build self-efficacy among educators, and help build allies for girls’ education among parents, caregivers and community members.

Girl Rising Stories

In addition to the stories from the Girl Rising film, we create new films, books, graphic novels, and short form content.

Meet Dania, a young entrepreneur in Mexico.

Meet Juliana in Ghana, who dreams of becoming an architect
