Global star and champion for the cause of women and girls across the world, Freida Pinto is all set to make her voice heard, this time in Liberia, Morocco and Spain with none other than the First Lady Michelle Obama!
Freida along with the First Lady, her daughters Sasha and Malia, and their grandmother Marian Robinson, will travel to Liberia, Morocco and Spain at the end of June and into early July as part of the Let Girls Learn initiative. Let Girls Learn is a government initiative aimed at helping girls obtain a quality education. The focus of the trip – which includes Monrovia, Marrakesh and Madrid – is for them to speak to young girls about the importance of education and staying in school.
Starting with Liberia, Pinto and Obama will take part in a discussion which will cover the educational barriers girls face in the country. President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf will meet with Pinto and the First Lady. In Morocco, Meryl Streep will be seen joining in along with Obama and Pinto to discuss the challenges women in the African country deal with on a regular basis.
More power to these women for supporting great initiatives that aim to make a difference in the lives of young girls!
