girl stars

We’ve mentioned our involvement with Pardada Pardadi before: they’re the girls’ school for which we’ve raised money, ran campaigns, built websites, and, in Jenny’s case, worked for in the Delhi office. Our experiences with them in the villages near Anupshahr helped us grasp a bit of the challenges that girls in this area have to overcome just to go to school and not get married in their early teens.

Which is why we enjoyed this video so much. It’s not only inspiring, it’s entertaining and funny and really well-shot.

This video is part of the Girl Stars campaign from Going To School India. There are fourteen other videos just like it, plus beautiful books based on the movies.

It’s rare to see such a broad campaign of such beauty and purpose. Spread the word!
