About us

Rising Girl is a charity that’s empowering and inspiring girls globally by providing educational opportunities to break the cycles of poverty and build brighter futures. 

Our Story

Our founder travelled to rural Rawalakot in Pakistan and saw just how some girls risked life and limb to get an education, she documented this in a short film which went viral.


Our mission is to empower and inspire girls through education. From delivering direct training courses that help girls break through barriers preventing them from attending school.

Our People

Rising Girl was founded when our chair visited Pakistan and witnessed how difficult life was for girls to get an education and to rise.


We work with other organisations and charities who share our values of openness and transparency and a vision to help girls to rise.
