10x10 India Trip 2

Daya Trust held it’s third screening of ‘Girl Rising‘ in New Zealand on 15 October 2013. This time we brought the movie to Auckland.

‘Girl Rising’ is a groundbreaking feature film about the strength of the human spirit, and the power of education to transform societies. The film presents the remarkable stories of 9 girls around the world, told by celebrated writers and voiced by renowned actors.

The movie uses powerful storytelling to deliver the simple, critical truth: educate girls and you will change the world.

Daya Trust was one of over 1,000 organisations around the world who brought Girl Rising to their local community to celebrate International Day of the Girl 2013. This was the second time we brought the movie to New Zealand to spread the message that girls want and need education to enable them to become their own changemakers.

The screening was followed by an audience discussion with Daya Trust Founder, Rochelle Stewart-Allen, and Ranjna Patel. Check out shots from the evening here ….
