Girl Rising is a documentary film highlighting the stories of nine girls born into unforgiving circumstances in the developing world. Its genesis is part of a global action campaign for girl’s education. Click here for more information.
The film was shown at the UU Church of Davis and organized by four local 14-year old girls in the youth group, Kyra Labbe-Renault, Grace Range, Sarah Valdez-Chabot and Jaymelyn Hubert, who wanted to make a difference for young girls overseas. Their efforts brought in over $1000 for MCF, earmarked for helping girl’s and young women’s education and boarding school housing in Myanmar.
