Girl Rising met and interviewed former Kamlari girls while in pre-production for the film. Here are their stories. Walking to School http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezWgsffhgwce One reason we made Girl Rising is because of the 66 million girls around the world who can only dream of getting an education. But, as we traveled the globe making the film, we were struck by the powerful energy of the girls who are in school their enthusiasm, their spirit, their sheer joy. The pride they take in their uniforms, in their schools, in their studies is infectious, and you wont be able to resist the rhythm of their feet as they walk to school and march into a better future. Dance http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2cuQW503b8 During the filming of Girl Rising, the filmmakers traveled around the world to meet hundreds of girls and hear their stories. The filmmakers not only heard stories of overcoming monumental barriers, of resilience, and of hope, but they also captured many moments of joy through dance. These are some of their favorites.
