DSC_1290Our ladies gathered for a serious topic concerning how powerful education can be for youth girls.  “Girl Rising” was viewed as a gathering by both SISLT and SITs at Vahalla thanks to the organization of our ladies.  This important film is expected to be shown soon to our target audience in Lake Tahoe; our girls. Thank you again to Doris, Lydia, and all who helped to bring the film “Girl Rising” to our SISLT and SITS members last night at the Valhalla property. From Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins, Girl Rising journeys around the globe to witness the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world. Viewers get to know nine unforgettable girls living in the developing world: ordinary girls who confront tremendous challenges and overcome nearly impossible odds to pursue their dreams. Prize-winning authors put the girls’ remarkable stories into words, and renowned actors give them voice.
