The Obama Foundation is taking steps to make sure girls around the world have access to education.
It'll focus on encouraging action to ensure young girls are provided with education opportunities. The program has also partnered with GoFundMe to provide a fund that'll support grassroots work on the issue.
According to Global Girls Alliance, almost 100 million adolescent girls globally face education barriers. The program wants to change that number.
The initiative builds on work that Obama championed during her time in the White House. Her 2015 Let Girls Learn campaign aimed to empower young girls through education. It was later discontinued by the Trump administration.
