What is 10x10 & Girl Rising?

10x10 is a global action campaign for girls’ education launched by the award-winning former ABC News journalists of The Documentary Group and Vulcan Productions, and powered by strategic partner, Intel Corporation. At its heart is Girl Rising, an innovative new feature film that spotlights the true stories of extraordinary girls around the world, striving beyond circumstance and overcoming impossible odds to reach their dreams.

Meet Wadley

Partners In Health worked with 10x10 in Haiti following the earthquake, introducing the team to Wadley, who was living in the Carradeux tent camp with her family. While PIH primarily works in the rural Central Plateau and Artibonite of Haiti, PIH responded to the earthquake in part by providing medical and psychosocial services to over 100,000 people living in encampments for displaced survivors in Port Au Prince.

Research suggests that educating girls and women safeguards their well-being, ensures healthy future generations, alleviates poverty, and boosts GDP. Yet alarming discrepancies persist between genders and within and among nations on who receives quality, sustained education and, consequently, who experiences the most opportunities to thrive. This Forum event will examine the sources of these discrepancies and review efforts to raise up the world's girls through health and education. This event is presented in partnership with Vulcan Productions, a founding partner of the 10x10 global action campaign centered on the new film Girl Rising. The broadcast version of the film will air on CNN Films on June 16.
