The First Family is working together to open doors of education for girls around the world.
Sixty-two million girls around the world are not in school.
According to the WHITE HOUSE official website, “President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will be championing their efforts to help adolescent girls around the globe attend and complete school through the Let Girls Learn initiative, which will build upon the public engagement campaign the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) launched last summer.”
In efforts to spread the word about the 62 million girls around the world who don’t have the opportunity to learn, the Let Girls Learn Initiative took to social mediums with the 62 Million Girls Yearbook.
First Lady Michelle Obama took to 62milliongirls.com to tell what she learned in school to get others to the movement.
Michelle said, “In school I learned how to speak up for myself. But without access to education 62 million girls worldwide will never have that chance. Join the campaign to Let Girls Learn by tweeting your photo using the hashtag 62 million girls and telling the world what you learned in school.”
Celebrities and people all around the world took to social mediums post what they learned in school.
Hollywood Producer Will Packer posted a picture on his instagram account with his two daughters in support of the 62 million girls campaign.
In his caption he said, “In school I learned to chase my dreams fearlessly and live life to the fullest! #62milliongirls don’t have that chance. Share what you learned in school with your photo and hash tag 62 million girls to join our yearbook at 62milliongirls.com @michelleobama.”
Ch’Are Pits a fourth-year chemistry student from Jacksonville, Fla., said school helped her find her purpose in life.
“In school I found my purpose in this world. I love chemistry and I want to help find cures for the sick 62 million girls don’t have that chance and I want to assist in any way I can so they can have the same chances as me,” Pits said.
