Soroptimist International of South Whidbey Island is bringing a global movement to educate girls and change the world home to Whidbey Island with a Screening of Girl Rising, to raise funds and awareness for scholarships and our Start Dreaming Day Camp for Girls. Girl Rising is a groundbreaking feature film that spotlights the stories of nine unforgettable girls born into unforgiving circumstances. The film captures their dreams, their voices and their remarkable lives. It is also a movement dedicated to empowering and achieving educational equity for girls around the world.
This International Day of the Girl celebration will bring friends, family, co-workers and Community together to raise global visibility about the importance of educating girls.
Soroptimists believe in the power of education to change not only a girl, but the world. By hosting a screening of Girl Rising we are demonstrating our commitment to breaking down the barriers that prevent girls around the world from going to school barriers like child marriage, sex trafficking, gender violence and discrimination. We are proud to be part of this growing movement, raising visibility on Whidbey Island alongside thousands of other events worldwide.”
