From this image alone, I see pattern (orange dots on white), color (brown, red, orange and white) and theme. This is the challenge to find beauty in images from countries that don’t celebrate or uplift young girls in the area of education and opportunities.

Girl Rising Inspiration Boards (International Day of the Girl Child)

Part 1: Choose a country

  • Peru
  • Afghanistan
  • Cambodia
  • Egypt
  • Sierra Leone
  • Haiti
  • India
  • Ethiopia
  • Nepal

Part 2: Research and collect images, inspirations on colors, prints, patterns and clothing styles

Part 3: Create a mood/inspiration board for your country

Part 4: Design an outfit inspired by your inspiration board

Part 5: Present and discuss questions

  • What changes when girls are educated?
  • How many girls worldwide are out of school?
  • How many girls are born into extreme poverty?
  • Why aren’t some girls in school?

Here are some great inspirational images I found for each of the countries I listed.
