The global campaign for girls' and women's empowerment, founded by the Italian label, has released "Humaira: The Game Changer."

Gucci's Chime for Change, the global campaign focused on empowering girls' and women's education, health and justice, has released a new film called called Humaira: The Game Changer.

Directed by Oscar winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, the film is a follow-up to Humaira: The Dream Catcher, which focused on 27-year-old education advocate Humaira Bachal and her path to creating her "Dream Model Street School" in Karachi, Pakistan, where education for girls is sadly disapproved. Both movies were produced by Chime for Change, with the first one presented by Madonna last year at the Sound of Change Live concert in London with performances by Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Lopez and John Legend.

Humaira: The Game Changer — which was introduced Wednesday at the Women's Forum Global Meeting in Deauville, France by Chime Film unit exec producer Salma Hayek Pinault — sees Bachal's dream become reality, as the Dream Model Street School was completed in summer 2014 with a playground, library and computer lab built for nearly 1,000 local girls and boys to pursue an education.
