Rise Together is the flagship programme from Birmingham based charity Rising Girl. Founded in 2018, Rising Girl aims to empower, inspire and educate girls aged 11-16 in some of the most deprived areas of the West Midlands.
Our 6-session Rise Together programme, made in collaboration with the Women's Aid Expect Respect Toolkit, educates girls on issues such as self-esteem and body image, online identity, healthy relationships, consent, online grooming, domestic violence and forced marriage. We are the only charity in the UK delivering sessions on honour-violence in schools.
Many of the girls we work with have limited choices which can act as barriers to them feeling safe and empowered, and we can help them by giving them the support and tools to rise.
