Educating a Community Amrita Bhasin, Menlo-Atherton High School

This film addresses the importance of educating young girls and women. Set in India through the interviews of a maid and cook, we see how education for girls and women is viewed in their small town. Educating women and girls is vital because you are really educating everyone. An Indian proverb states, “Educating the father means educating one person. Educating the mother means educating a whole community.”
