Just this week, while the world’s leaders met at the United Nations, Michelle Obama launched a new campaign #62MillionGirls to call attention to the ongoing challenge to ensure that all girls everywhere have a chance to go to school. More than 62 million girls worldwide – around half of whom are adolescents – are being denied their right to an education.
“If we want to end global poverty, if we want to improve the plight of our country, educating girls is the key to all of that. It just is.”
Get involved! Watch the message from the First Lady (who we think is awesome!!) and then add your voice by doing this.
**The campaign is organized by Girl Rising in support of Let Girls Learn, a US Govt initiative to encourage and support community-led programs to help girls GO to school and STAY in school.
