#RoyalWomenInspire: Michelle Obama Launches Global Initiative To Educate Girls

It’s been two years since our Forever First Lady left us at the White House and  she continues to inspire us!

 

Her latest humanitarian initiative, the Global Girls Alliance, was launched on Wednesday on International Day of the Girl. Through it the former First Lady hopes to “create a fundraising destination where anyone can support grassroots leaders and their work for adolescent girls’ education.” According to the program, more than 98 million adolescent girls are not in school. The Global Girls Alliance is a program that’s apart of  the Obama Foundation. The Alliance not only works to get girls in school but will also encourage them to be their own bosses.

“With the Global Girls Alliance, we’ll lift up the grassroots leaders in communities all over the world who are clearing away the hurdles that too many girls face,” she told CNN.  “These are offering scholarships, launching mentorship programs, preparing girls to become entrepreneurs, and reaching out to parents so girls are supported not just at school, but at home as well.”

Dozens of celebrities and organizations are on board Mrs. Obama’s train of girl power!
