I saw a fantastic movie this week. It's called Girl Rising. Check it out and see if it's playing in your area. It was moving and beautiful and sad and inspirational.
Girl Rising is much like the book Half The Sky. I love that book and the Half The Sky movement too. Check them out!
There are things we can do to change the world...and the #1 way to change poverty is to educate girls. Of course educate boys too. But, the point is that in many parts of the world girls are not given the opportunity of an education. Educate girls and poverty goes down, the age she marries goes up, the age at which she has a child goes up, HIV rates go down, infant mortality rates go down.
I encourage All of you to sponsor a girl to go to school. Together we can change the world!
