Watch: Growing Up Girl (Anthropology | Global Issues)
Made in partnership between Bono's ONE Campaign and RYOT, experience a day in the life of a young girl who lives on the border of Tanzania and Kenya. Narrated by the ten year old girl, the film is a visceral and sensory experience that takes the viewer with her - as she treks to collect water, as she walk miles to school, and as she embarks on her nightly pilgrimage to the nearest light source to study. The film uses a personal narrative as a window into the global issue of poverty's effect on women and girls.

They have known for decades that their future was in peril; they have seen the land dropping away on all sides and the river growing stronger year after year.

WE WILL RISE: Michelle Obama's Mission to Educate Girls Around the World Around the world, more than 62 million girls are not in school, according to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). As girls grow into adolescence, cultural and familial pressures often make it harder for them to stay in school, though educating women correlates to lower rates of infant mortality, increased GDP, and greater economic security for families. CNN Films has produced a new film about girls overcoming incredible challenges to achieve their educations and change their own lives, with contributions from First Lady Michelle Obama, Meryl Streep, Freida Pinto, and CNN journalist Isha Sesay.
