Girl Rising is starting its campaign effectively in Pakistan with an objective to promote the message of the importance of girl’s education. The campaign has already established a network of regional ambassadors in different countries as well as Pakistan to further the mission and agenda of the movement raised from a film, Girl Rising directed by Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins, tells the stories of eight extraordinary girls from around the world.
At present the campaign is everywhere in the world and people engaged with the campaign are following a diverse range of programs and initiatives to promote the objectives and making difference in their communities, towns, cities and countries. Richard E. Robbins, the film director says: “my job, the job of the film, is to change minds–not just to make people understand that girls’ education is important, but to make them believe that the change we need is possible. That these girls are just like our girls. Like girls everywhere. Smart, powerful, and eager to make the world better.”
Khurram Shahzad Hameed, a sociologist by profession and regional ambassador of the campaign in Islamabad shared that the screening of the Film will be held in first week of February in Islamabad with an aim to seek effective & passionate participation of citizens, young activists, social workers and journalists. The message should reach to everyone from policy makers to communities and public at large. This is the only effective and wise choice for us to follow making Pakistani society progressed and humane. The film will be taken to the government officials, schools, colleges and universities of the capital city later. Mr. Hameed further stressed that people from every walk of life should mobilize themselves and contributes in this movement. Education empowers the girls, and it is basic need not a luxury. Education for Girls means healthy and productive lives. Education equips our girls with instruments and skills for taking control of their social, political and economic lives. Education, definitely, is only way to make girls of our society happy & strong. There is a simple and critical truth that exists – educating girls can change the world in just one generation.
