Inspiring and powerful film!
10 September 2017 | by hannahbhSee all my reviews

A beautifully well-done film depicting the lives of 5 girls growing up at Shanti Bhavan Children's Project. A touchingly sweet and sometimes heartbreaking film, Daughters of Destiny breaks down barriers for women and girls around the world and will empower viewers to champion these causes. Definitely a must-see for anyone passionate about education, children, girl's rights, and equal opportunity!
