Girl Stories: Rehaima from Rwanda

Rehaima is from the Rugero Sector in Rwanda. She created this video of her story after learning digital storytelling for the first time earlier this year. Along with other girls in her community, she shared her story in a village film festival that raised awareness of the issues girls face and what they are doing about it.


This digital storytelling project was possible thanks to funding from the Nike Foundation and the Girl Effect.

This International Day of the Girl, let's show girls the global community of support behind them. Share Rehaima's story, talk with others about the importance of girls' education or maybe even share your own story!
