Rise Up’s award-winning advocacy model amplifies the voices and power of women, girls, and allies through storytelling.

Our digital storytelling methodology supports participants through the process of learning how to raise their voices, choosing stories they want to tell, creating their own story boards, learning to film and photograph, and editing their own pieces. The final product is a powerful tool that girls and women can use in their advocacy work, that resonates with decision-makers.

PODER, a film about two Guatemalan girls’ fight to transform their community, is a powerful example of Rise Up’s storytelling.
