Madhumita is a Girls' Voices Scholar!
Madhumita participates in Girls' Voices, GreaterGood.org's signature girls’ empowerment program ensuring that girls around the world complete secondary school and gain the confidence they need to succeed.
During Girls’ Voices, Madhumita learned media skills to tell her story. She made this video, called "Sujog," which beautifully shows how girls, even though talented and motivated, can miss out on opportunities just because they are girls.
In Madhumita's words, "Gender disparity has its legacy since the prehistoric age! It is even more complex today. Shooting this film with other girls was a great experience, showing what many girls have to go through."
Watch her video now to hear her story.
Girls' Voices is a Signature Program of GreaterGood.org intended to raise funds for girls' secondary education through media made by girls. Our goal is for girls around the world to connect to their voice, their dreams for their education, and use the power of digital media to create images, stories, and visual metaphors that can communicate their strength and potential to the world. The intention of this project is to empower girls to utilize videography to raise scholarship funds to remove financial barriers to completing secondary education.
