Thanks so very much for supporting efforts to bring the film Girl Rising to Maine!
people have asked - "Why?"... My simplest answer is...spreading the
word is these girls' best chance at winning their struggle for an
education. Repeatedly, studies have shown that the best way to bring
people out of poverty, increase their chances and their children's
chances of having healthier, safer lives is to educate girls.When you support a girl's education, you
decrease the chances that she will become a victim of domestic violence,
human trafficking, health complications due to early and repeated
pregnancies and so many more tragic scenarios. The benefits that are
harder to quantify? Self esteem. Independence. Fullfillment.
