This powerful film is known throughout the world. It is collaborative in spirit, reaching out to both women and men. The film connects global issues of literacy for girls with local concerns in our own community. What can each of us do to help? How can we in Kitchener-Waterloo be ambassadors for the path of educating girls? And how does educating girls make a world that is more peaceful, more just, less riddled by conflict?
