Let Girls Learn
Michelle and Barack Obama are partnering with the U.S. Agency for International Development and The Peace Corp to expand in a campaign that was initiated by the U.S. AID to develop programs that will allow girls the opportunity to have an education. The first eleven countries that will be involved are Albania, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Georgia, Ghana, Moldova, Mongolia, Mozambique, Togo, and Uganda. More countries will be added in the following year. This campaign is important because it works to stop the digression and financial and social stagnancy of women in developing countries.
Main Quote: "Every child is precious. Every girl is precious. Every girl deserves and education." -Barack Obama
Mission: "Get the Word Out"
I plan to use the one resource that most teens have today; social media. I can create a hashtag that will inform people of the struggles girls in other countries face. Hopefully, it will reach celebrities so that they can donate money to the "Let Girls Learn" project. In addition, I can donate books to other countries to promote female literacy.
