“Because I Am A Girl” partners with Robin Bond Media film & video production.

Because I Am A Girl  / Plan International USA  and Robin Bond Media/Derby Baby have partnered in effort to reach the goal of supporting, educating and raising 4 million girls out of poverty worldwide by 2015.  In many parts of the world, being a girl means being more likely to suffer from malnutrition, be forced into early marriage, be subjected to violence, be sold into the sex trade, or become infected with HIV.  Because she is a girl, she faces discrimination in her own home.  Because she is a girl, she’ll have limited access to a doctor or even a primary education (if she’s able to go to school at all).  Plan International USA / Because I am a Girl aim to change all that.

Because I am a Girl is a global initiative of Plan International that creates sustainable projects in developing countries to give girls access to the most basic of human rights: clean water, food, healthcare, education, financial security, and protection from violence and exploitation.

International “Day of the Girl” Oct 11th

Following an extensive campaign by Plan, The United Nations has declared October 11 as ‘International Day of the Girl Child’. This move comes thanks to the passion and commitment of girls themselves who have lobbied the UN with support from Plan, the Canadian government and all the UN member states, as well as the thousands of people who signed an extensive petition.

Our film “Derby Baby” and why we believe in “Because I Am A Girl”

At its core, the sport of women’s flat track roller derby is about women’s empowerment, community, and D-I-Y.  So it was no surprise to the creators of “Derby, Baby!” when roller derby leagues around the world started finding creative ways to use this film to make a difference in their communities.  It is in this same spirit of sisterhood and community service that the filmmakers have decided to partner with Plan International to support the Because I am a Girl campaign, as well as the first ever “Day of the Girl” approaching on Oct 11.

The makers of “Derby Baby”  are proud to announce that for every Blu-ray/DVD purchase of our documentary film,  two dollars will go to Because I Am A Girl, mobilizing women and girls all over the world and giving greater access to education, clean water and much more.  Join us in changing young girls lives around the globe.  Because being a girl should always be a positive, empowering experience.

Derby Baby Blu-ray/DVD release coming this week. Additonal information go to www.DerbyBabyTheFilm.com
