In her capacity as Deputy Director of 10×10, a first-of-its-kind global campaign to educate girls, Tara Abrahams manages 10×10’s partnerships with leading NGOs, corporations, and policy organizations, connecting best-practice, girl-focused programs around the world to the 10×10 campaign and its strategy to achieve global impact.The campaign combines the power of a groundbreaking feature film with the reach of a global, digitally-integrated social action initiative. Both elements drive home a simple message: a global commitment to educating girls in the developing world will bring about transformational change, economic growth and development.
