Let Girls Learn Initiative

62 million girls around the world are not in school. Many more face significant barriers to completing their education.

On 3 March, First Lady Michelle Obama and the Peace Corps launched a new effort on the Let Girls Learn initiative to help break down barriers to girls’ education and address the Second Generation priority of developing country leadership, and to, in turn, improve health, social, and economic outcomes for girls, their families, and their communities.

We invite you to learn more about this initiative and why it is so crucial for overall global development efforts. You can also join the conversation on twitter using hashtag #LetGirlsLearn.
