In celebration of International Women’s Day, WUSC UPEI Local Committee, the Rotaract Club of UPEI, and Robertson Library will be showing the documentary To Educate A Girl: Empowering Women and Girls in the Developing World, by filmmakers Frederick Rendina and Oren Rudavsky.
“What does it take to educate a girl? Framed by the United Nations global initiative to provide equal access to education for girls by 2015, TO EDUCATE A GIRL takes a ground-up and visually stunning view of that effort through the eyes of girls out of school, starting school or fighting against the odds to stay in school.” Kanopy.
The purpose of the film will be to raise money for the Shine A Light Program, an initiative that provides women and girls within refugee camps the opportunity to better their educational prospects.
