Dove Review

Grace Orsolato is a woman of great vision and an inspiration to anyone who watches this documentary. Coming from Italy as a volunteer with an Italian NGO, she was deeply moved by the squalor that so many people were living in. She learned that girls are second-class citizens even in the slums and garbage dumps of Kenya. Determined to make a difference, Grace started Get Together Girls (GtoG), a nonprofit group dedicated to helping bring girls out of the slums and into a profitable business of designing and making clothing.

This documentary follows the lives of some of the girls who have benefited from Grace’s vision. She taught them self-respect and hope, and how to reach their potential by working together as a team.

We are pleased to award this inspiring film the Dove Family Approved Seal for ages 12 and older.
