Censeo Consulting Group Partners with Girl Rising to Support India Growth Strategy

Censeo Consulting Group, a management consulting firm that works with mission-focused organizations to scale management and operational capacity, has partnered with Girl Rising to provide strategy, fundraising, and development services for the organization’s work in India.
Girl Rising, a global campaign for girls’ education and empowerment, builds partnerships to increase visibility and influence community, corporate, and national leaders. The organization launched in India to change attitudes that perpetuate gender inequality.

“It’s an exciting time for Girl Rising in India! Following a nationwide broadcast, and with new programs in development, there is a great deal of opportunity to drive impact,” said Girl Rising CEO Christina Lowery. “It’s been wonderful working with the thoughtful team at Censeo, as they join us to advance our efforts.”

Censeo will provide additional pro-bono support to Girl Rising, including a community screening of Girl Rising’s namesake film in Washington, D.C.

Censeo’s involvement with Girl Rising continues a series of partnerships with education access nonprofits. In 2012, Censeo partnered with Higher Achievement to provide more than $750,000 in pro bono services to the youth mentoring nonprofit. Censeo’s nonprofit practice also includes organizations that support higher education access.

“We are so energized by Girl Rising’s mission,” said Raj Sharma, CEO of Censeo. “We look forward to leveraging our management and nonprofit expertise to help the Girl Rising leadership team develop their India growth and development strategy.”

Sharma joined the Girl Rising US-India advisory board earlier this year, where he provides strategic input and advice as part of the board.
