These MAKERS Are Speaking Up for #62MillionGirls

These MAKERS Are Speaking Up for #62MillionGirls

First Lady Michelle Obama launched Let Girls Learn, a powerful initiative to help the more than 62 million girls around the world who are not in school – half whom are adolescent – go to school and stay in school.

Girl Rising, in support of Let Girls Learn, is using the power of storytelling to share how educating girls can transform societies.

The First Lady asked people to join the campaign to Let Girls Learn by tweeting your photo using the hashtag #62Million Girls to share some lessons they learned in school.

The tweets appear in the #62MillionGirls yearbook on 62milliongirls.com.
