Girl Rising (GR) launched in India with the national broadcast of its flagship film Woh Padhegi, Woh Udegi in August 2015. This film depicted lives of 8 girls who surmounted near impossible barriers to gain an education. Since then GR has been implementing on-the-ground interventions, premised on media tools, to raise awareness on the issue of gender-based discrimination, and to inspire a mindset and behaviour shift in the value stakeholders- including girls themselves- accord to their agency. Through its various projects and strategic partnerships, GR has been able to usher changes in schools, communities, and households, alike. GR continues to learn and build on its projects to shape an equitable future for girls and women across the country.

GR developed a gender-sensitisation training manual that focused on improving self-efficacy and building agency of young adolescents through interactive sessions, and collaborative activities. This manual uses GR’s films to set the context of issue, and sought to encourage students to introspect and challenge the subliminal and explicit forms of gender-based discrimination. For its upcoming projects that are focused on training adolescents on the aforementioned manual, GR is looking for a Module Development Consultant to iterate, adapt, and finalise necessary curricula materials.
