Fight for girls' education, one jump at a time!

Girl Ed comes in two parts: A game to reach a large audience, and an educational website that provides more in depth information. In the game, you are set in the perspective of a young girl struggling to get an education. The user is able to choose a character to play as. With a storyline and quick facts, the player is exposed to the reality of the issue, while having fun playing the game.

Many aren’t aware that globally 65 million girls are not going to school. It’s an issue not well known and acted upon, despite being an problem of such large scale. We believe that all children should have equal access to education.

Girl Ed is the result of our ideas raising awareness in a fun and creative way. We were able to achieve our mission of making a product that raised awareness of the global gender gap in education, and hopefully inspires you to get involved.

We faced the difficulty of learning a new language in one week. We overcame it with a lot of persistence and help from the internet and our teachers.

"This is DOPE!"
