The film is produced by award-winning former ABC News journalists of The Documentary Group, and Paul G Allen’s Vulcan Productions. The film is the centerpiece of 10×10 – a global campaign to educate and empower girls.

The Slum dog Millionaire beauty lends her voice along with actresses Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, and Kerry Washington, along with other actresses. These women are coming together for a wonderful cause. “The film is about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world,” said the World Bank.

‘Girl Rising‘ tells the stories of extraordinary girls from Haiti, India, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan, Peru, Cambodia, Egypt, Ethiopia and Nepal, who fought against all odds for their right to receive an education.

Good job ladies!
