The White House has launched "a Government-Wide Approach To Empower Girls Around the World" called Let Girls Learn. This is a program The Brown Gothamite will support, because empowering girls is of the utmost importance to me.
"To educate a girl is to build a healthier family, a stronger community, and a brighter future. Unfortunately today, 62 million girls around the world are not in school."
"This new effort will build on the Let Girls Learn public engagement campaign launched last summer by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Let Girls Learn will elevate existing programs, including in areas of conflict and crisis, and leverage public and private sector partners. It will also look to build more partnerships and challenge other organizations and governments to commit resources to lift up adolescent girls across the globe."
Here are The President and First Lady discussing the initiative.
