Growing Up Girl
Published on September 30, 2015
In this short VR film made in partnership between Bono’s ONE Campaign and RYOT, experience a day in the life of a young girl who lives on the border of Tanzania and Kenya. Narrated by the ten year old girl, the film is a visceral and sensory experience that takes the viewer with her – as she treks to collect water, as she walk miles to school, and as she embarks on her nightly pilgrimage to the nearest light source to study. The film uses a personal narrative as a window into the global issue of poverty’s effect on women and girls.
