"The film is amazing and so well crafted. It is inspiring and as an audience member you feel that something very powerful and wholesome is being born into the world. In our current climate of distrust and distress this film reminds us of goodness, courage, bravery and the overcoming of adversity. It is like a flower heading towards the light and coming into full bloom." ~ Anahata Iradah
Girl Rising is not only a truly great and inspiring documentary but also an international movement bringing awareness to girls issues of suppression/oppression in developing countries and the importance of educating/empowering these girls as a powerful means of transformating the world for better. We will begin the evening by watching a short 7 minute documentary highlighting the locally supported organization Bright Nepal . ALL donations from the evening will support Girl Rising AND Bright Nepal, a girls hostel that rescues "at risk" girls and gives them a safe, comfortable place to live and an education in Kathmandu, Nepal.
