SCREENING SHOWCASES THE POWER OF EDUCATING GIRLS
Jefferson City, MO- Lincoln University, in cooperation with the United Way of Central Missouri, will screen a film which promotes the power of educating young girls. âGirl Risingâ, is the story of nine girls from various parts of the world who are able to change their lives and the lives of others through education. The screening is scheduled for Monday, November 17, at 6:30 p.m. in Lincoln Universityâs Scruggs University Center Ballroom. Admission is free with a valid student ID, $5 for non-students. Doors to the ballroom will open at 6 p.m.
According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), some 66 million girls are not receiving education around the globe. Instead of classrooms, many of these girls will be found in arranged marriages, domestic slavery and/or sex trafficking. The 10x10 Campaign works to bring awareness to the issue, while empowering girls, through screenings of âGirl Risingâ and other events.
The Lincoln University Offices of the President and Student Affairs, partnered with the United Way of Central Missouri to bring this important film to the campus and the community. Organizers say while much of the audience takes access to education for granted, the global problem is very real.
âWhile getting into an institution of higher education may seem like a tough road to travel, this is a choice which the young women here at Lincoln University and those in our surrounding community are afforded,â says Tammy Nobles, Director of Student Activities. âIn this space in time, it seems unfathomable that there are parts of the world where education doesnât reach girls, but it is a reality-a reality we must understand and work to change.â
A panel discussion will follow the screening.
