Girl Rising (GR) is a US-based nonprofit organization that uses the power of storytelling to change the way the world values and invests in girls and their education. GR tells stories about girls who face daunting barriers to their independence with determination and courage, strategically deploying these stories to fuel and strengthen social movements – informing and inspiring people to take action for girls and gender equality. GR works with local partners, adapting these stories into culturally relevant educational tools that build confidence and agency in girls and that change attitudes and social norms within their communities. More than 7,100 educators from over 130 countries have accessed the Girl Rising global curricula for use in their classrooms and hundreds more have engaged in country-specific efforts.
