US First Lady Michelle Obama and her two teenage daughters are on a visit to two African nations this week to promote her education initiative, ‘Let Girls Learn’.
Sasha and Malia, – who recently got accepted into Harvard – are accompanying their mum Michelle on the trip to promote the initiative aimed at improving girl’s access to education all across the globe.
The trio would be in Morocco and Liberia on the three day trip, and would be joined by Meryl Streep and Freida Pinto.
“In Liberia, the first lady will meet with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the first elected female head of state in Africa, and have a discussion with local teenage girls, moderated by Pinto.” USA Today reports.
“In Marrakech (Morocco), Streep will join in for a conversation with adolescent girls. Costs for the actresses’ trip are being picked up by CNN Films, which will air a documentary this fall featuring the stories of girls in Liberia and Morocco who have overcome barriers to going to and staying in school.” The report adds.
The ‘Let Girl’s Learn’ Initiative is one Michelle has put considerable energy into the past few years, including releasing a rap song to get girls involved featuring top female stars.
