Michelle Obama is the definition of Black Girl Magic and she displays it each and everyday with each stride she takes. With this new venture she will be affording every girl an opportunity to get an education. Education is something many are deprived of and it is something not only every girl should be afforded, but every human being on this earth. But with this huge announcement a start to make sure all girls are educated is in the forefront.
"I'm proud to announce the Obama Foundation's launch of the Global Girls Alliance. We're seeking to empower adolescent girls around the world through education, so that they can support their families, communities and countries. The evidence is clear. Girls who attend secondary school earn higher salaries, have lower infant and maternal mortality rates, and are less likely to contract malaria and HIV. And studies have shown that educating girls isn't just good for the girls, it's good for all of us.
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. 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."
