This week, First Lady Michelle Obama is documenting her travels in support of Let Girls Learn here on Hello Giggles.
Today, she describes her experiences in Morocco — what young women there are doing to become leaders in their community and get an education. I started my day in Morocco, which, in addition to being one of America’s oldest allies, is also an important partner in our work through Let Girls Learn.
I know these girls are going to do great things with their lives, and I cannot wait to see everything they achieve in the years ahead.
If you follow this blog over the course of this week, you’ll get a window into these girls’ lives – you’ll learn about their challenges, their successes, their hopes and dreams – and you’ll find out what you can do to help them get the education they need and deserve. I’ll be posting daily here on Hello Giggles as well as on Twitter (@FLOTUS), Instagram (@Michelle Obama), and Snapchat (Michelle Obama).
For some of these girls, the nearest middle school is hours from home, which is why only 14 percent of girls in rural Morocco make it to high school.
