Get ready for 2 big moments, just 1 week away!
OCTOBER 11th IS A BIG DAY.
It is when the Nobel Peace Prize will be announced. We think Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teen shot by the Taliban, who advocates for peace and learning in the face of violence and ignorance would be a wonderful laureate. Don’t you?
October 11th is also International Day of the Girl - and it's not too late for you to join in and spread the word that girls’ education matters. Here are a few ways to get involved during the month of October:
Gather friends for a mini-screening. Suma’s story is amazing - plus, it’s a great, free way to celebrate girls and fuel the movement. Don't forget the popcorn!
Join the Movement on Twitter
Have some fun with our social media campaign: #WeAreGirlRising. We are seeing -- and resharing -- tweets and photos from girl-champions around the world - join our community, and show the world your support for girls!
Tell the Teacher!
Tell everyone you know in the education community – parents, teachers, principals, superintendents - that there is a new Girl Rising Curriculum, aligned with Common Core, and designed to motivate the next generation of leaders. Educators can find the free curriculum here.
Thanks for your support for the Girl Rising campaign! Together, we are building a powerful movement for change.
