Taking the stage together in New York City, Mrs. Obama, Melinda French Gates, and Amal Clooney participated in a special event in support of the Girls Opportunity Alliance’s Get Her There campaign and girls’ education around the world.
During the lively gathering, the Alliance was thrilled to announce a collaboration between the trailblazers’ respective organizations to advance gender equality and end child marriage—helping girls overcome barriers they face in their communities in order to reach their full potential.
The three girls’ empowerment and gender equity champions were joined by Wanjiru Wahome, the executive director of the Samburu Girls Foundation in Kenya—a community-led organization in the Girls Opportunity Alliance which works to rescue girls from child marriage and to help them get the education they deserve.
We asked girls from around the world to write a letter to their 25-year-old selves, outlining the dreams, ambitions, and accomplishments they hope to achieve by 25.
A special thank you to all those spreading the #GetHerThere message.
The Girls Opportunity Alliance is grateful to all of the donors and partners that are making Get Her There possible and is proud to announce its diverse coalition of growing sponsors, collaborators, and supporters who are united in ensuring all girls are empowered with the resources they need to fulfill their potential:
