Girl Rising Screening

Girl Rising

Hear Their Stories; Change Their Lives

On Saturday 3rd September, African Initiatives hosted a screening of Girl Rising, an incredibly moving film that follows 9 girls in 9 different countries battling to get an education.

Thank you to all of those who joined us at the Arnolfini, we hope you were inspired by the stories of these brave girls.

A special thanks to the enormously generous Portishead, Clifton Lido, Tobacco Factory, Woodland Ways, Paul Mansfield the Pilot, Laithwaites, Waitrose, River Cottage Canteen and the Boston Tea Party, for your kind donations to the evening.

Thank you to Philip Field for designing the leaflet and documenting the evening with his camera, to Colin Moody who compered the auction and our fantastic volunteers who made the event possible.
