I Am A Girl Education Campaign

We are aiming to raise $60,000 to build an education campaign around I Am A Girl, a new Australian documentary from award-winning young filmmaker Rebecca Barry. Through the personal stories told by six young women from different parts of the world, I Am A Girl addresses profound issues of inequality faced by many young women, as well as offering inspirational stories of triumph against the odds in many small and important ways.

Girls make up almost a quarter of the world's population yet still face the greatest discrimination of any group in the world. One in every three girls is denied an education, one in seven is married by age fifteen. Every sixty seconds a girl dies giving birth. Technology and science offer unimaginable potential but we still struggle to ensure men and women are afforded equal opportunities.

The Documentary Australia Foundation (DAF) is working with the filmmakers on an education campaign built around I Am A Girl, to help people understand the enormous effects of inequality, not only on girls but also on their families, communities and countries. The campaign will also inspire girls to pursue their goals and help them reach their full potential.

Your support will enable us to build a comprehensive campaign involving teacher focus screenings, specialist curriculum writers, screenings in dozens of secondary schools nationally, and research and development of specific lesson plans. You can help I Am A Girlto engage young people, teachers and parents in discussion and action for gender equity, ending sex slavery, supporting health initiatives and empowering young girls to reach their full potential.

Our goal is to raise $60,000 to roll out this education campaign nationally over 3-years. Please help us by making a tax-deductible donation today.
