Obama Foundation’s Global Girls Alliance

October 11, 2018 | 1 minute
Today, more than 98 million adolescent girls around the world are not in school. That’s a lot of empty desks—and a lot of dreams that are being cut short. When girls get the opportunities they deserve, amazing things start to happen; poverty goes down, economies grow, families get stronger, and babies are born healthier. And the world, by all accounts, gets better. Join the Girls Opportunity Alliance to take action to help adolescent girls and the grassroots leaders working to educate them. In October 2018, Meryl Streep joined Julia Roberts, John Legend, Natalie Portman, David Beckham, Anne Hathaway and Amy Poehler, among others, to support the organization with an online video that was posted on Youtube.
