Girl Rising

Years 5-10

Girl Rising

Learners will discuss the causes and factors that limit education for all and through Sustainable Development Goals:

#4 Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all

#5 Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

#10 Reduce inequality within and among countries

#11 Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable Education, which is at the core of all human development, is a basic human right, so Human and Child Rights are an intrinsic part of this project.

Through the film, Girl Rising, learners will see nine girls in the developing world who confront tremendous challenges and overcome nearly impossible odds to achieve their dreams and obtain a quality education.

As part of their discussions with other classes, students are encouraged to share ideas about what they can do to ensure that all girls and boys in the world have the right to a quality education.
