On Wednesday, January 9 , HRVHS Girl Up will be showing the final movie in their 3-part movie series at Hood River Cinemas. HRVHS Girl Up is raising money for Give Her A Future-a program that provides school supplies and teachers for educational programs for girls in Uganda. 100% of movie and raffle ticket sales are donated to Give Her A Future. The HRVHS Girl Up movie series educates our community about the realities, struggles and often triumphs of girls around the world.
I AM A GIRL is an inspirational, award-winning documentary film that paints a clear picture of the reality of what it means to be a girl in the 21st century. As a day on earth transpires from dawn to dusk and into the night, we meet Manu, Kimsey, Aziza, Habiba, Breani and Katie-each on the brink of womanhood and dealing with the realities of what it means to grow up female in their world today. As they come of age in a way their culture dictates, we see remarkable heart-warming stories of resilience, bravery and humour.
The movie is Wednesday, January 9 at 6:30 at Hood River Cinemas. Cost is $15 and 100 percent of the proceeds go to Give her a Future-Uganda. Purchase tickets in advance at Doug’s and Melika.
