What’s holding girls back from reaching their dreams?

Watch how Bollywood’s Priyanka Chopra is inspiring girls to build a brighter future

Schoolgirls in India

Bollywood’s Priyanka Chopra doesn’t like to see how gender stereotypes around the world are holding girls back from accessing education, and she speaks up about it in the YouTube Social Impact video below.

“As girls grow up, the list of instructions grows as well,” she tells the camera, citing a long list of expectations.

At Christian Children’s Fund of Canada, we help girls access school and education about their rights so they can reach their dreams, rather than be forced into an early marriage or exploited in other ways.

Watch the video below, and help today by sending a girl to school for a year.
