Girl Rising in Lugano

When great minds think it coincidence or call it obvious - given that yesterday the world celebrated Int'l. Women's Day - in any case, following my post of March 8th raising awareness for a project called "Girl Rising", tonight I stumble across a post on Lugano's Expat facebook page announcing the screening of this film. "Girl Rising" is a global campaign for girls' education. It brings together visionaries: girls, women, boys and men who know that educating girls is the smartest investment of our time. You can join the movement. Find out how.

Following is the film's trailer to give some insight why your support is needed:
