10 Years Rising: "Girls can do anything, girls can become anything."

October 03, 2019

This year PHI's Rise Up is celebrating 10 years of global impact—10 years of listening to, believing in, and investing in girls and women around the world. Watch our new video highlighting Rise Up Leaders Memory Banda and Faith Phiri and the impact of their work to ensure a better future for girls and women in Malawi by ending child marriage and other harmful traditional practices. 

And join Rise Up in celebrating decade of rising up for a more equitable world at our 10th Anniversary Breakfast Gala in San Francisco on December 11, 2019.

Rise Up Leaders, Faith Phiri and Memory Banda work to mobilize women and girls to enact change in their communities surrounding child marriage and harmful sexual practices. In partnership with Rise Up, Faith and Memory continue to empower girls to raise their voices to end child marriage and harmful traditions so that all Malawian girls can achieve their full potential.
