Let Girls Learn celebrates its one-year anniversary!

Let Girls Learn celebrates its one-year anniversary!

Launched by President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama on March 3, 2015, Let Girls Learn is a U.S. government effort that aims to address the challenges that keep 62 million adolescent girls from attending and completing school.

The Peace Corps’ Let Girls Learn Program celebrated its one-year anniversary with a BIG announcement: the addition of 23 new Let Girls Learn countries, more than doubling the number of participating countries and expanding the initiative’s reach to thousands of Peace Corps volunteers and girls around the world!

We couldn’t be happier about this news! At ONE, we know that the day that every woman is given equal opportunity will be the day the entire world will realize its full potential. It’s not right that, in 2016, half a billion women still cannot read and 62 million girls are denied an education.

Let’s raise the challenges faced by women everywhere and encourage our leaders to prioritize them. The more people that join this movement, the harder it is to ignore.
