Do you want to be inspired? Do you want to know what happens when a young girl in a impoverished country is given a education? Hope is what happens. Hope that she will break free from poverty. Hope that she will not be a part of the orphan factory. Hope that we can change the world one girl at a time.
So this Sunday June 16th at 9pm ET/PT watch a portion of the documentary "Girl Rising" on CNN.
This is what World Vision has to say about it:
CNN will be airing the film Girl Rising this Sunday, June 16 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. World Vision is a film partner, and the CNN version will feature the story of a World Vision-sponsored girl: Azmera from Ethiopia (pictured above).
Watch the heart-warming trailer.
Azmera is one of several girls from around the world featured in Girl Rising, a film highlighting the obstacles girls face in the pursuit of education.
Named one of the "hottest cause documentaries in years" by the New York Times, Girl Rising is directed by Academy Award nominee, Richard E. Robbins, and includes the voice talents of Hollywood stars Liam Neeson, Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett, Selena Gomez, Salma Hayek, Alicia Keyes, and Kerry Washington.
Girl Rising is presented by 10x10, a global campaign to educate and empower girls around the world. Learn more about World Vision's partnership with 10x10 or consider empowering girls by giving a gift to the Strong Women Strong World Fund.
