Girl Rising has partnered with the International Rescue Committee and Citi to create a film and campaign around the story of one brave young girl named Nasro, whose daily life is a fight to get the education she deserves. The film, to be released this March for International Women’s Day, is just one of many ways Girl Rising, the IRC, and Citi are working to ensure girls everywhere on the planet have access to safe schooling. In our first blog post, we explained why we are telling the story of Nasro. In this blog post, filmmaker and Girl Rising Chief Creative Officer Martha Adams talks about how she came to see that Warsan Shire was the only writer who could tell this story.
