Donald Trump is ending Michelle Obama's girls education program

US President, Donald Trump's administration will not continue a signature girls education initiative championed by former first lady Michelle Obama.  

According to an internal memo, the "Let Girls Learn" program, which she started in 2015 to facilitate educational opportunities for adolescent girls in developing countries, will cease operation immediately. While aspects of the initiative's programming will continue, employees have been told to stop using the "Let Girls Learn" name and also that as a program unto itself, "Let Girls Learn" was ending.

An email sent to Peace Corps employees this week by the agency's acting director Sheila Crowley reads,
 'Moving forward, we will not continue to use the 'Let Girls Learn' brand or maintain a stand-alone program. The  program provided a platform to showcase Peace Corps' strength in community development, shining a bright light on the work of our Volunteers all over the world. We are so proud of what 'Let Girls Learn' accomplished and we have all of you to thank for this success'.

Bitter failed President. The lowest rated President ever in the US history. All his ambition is to end Barack Obama's legacies, but he has no program.

You must not sound as a feminist all the time. Donald Trump wants all adolescent to have education not only the girl child. Linda we all know you hate the boy child, if people like you continue like this in the next 20years we will have an imbalance society. Every child matters please

Good. About time we held our leaders to account to spend money on our education instead of relying on NGOs!

This should not even make News. Michelle created a pet project, was it created by Congress or the govt? The woman left the White house, are they supposed to continue her pet programs even though the opposition won? Did Jonathan continue Turai's work? Did Buhari continue Patience's work? Did Obama continue Laura Bush's work? Linda is obsessed with the idea of power couple that anything against the Obamas is a crime.- newyorker

No matter what Trump does, the millions of girls worldwide inspired by "First Lady" Michelle Obama's legacy, will be there to inspire future generations.

Women such as Linda, and all the young women striving to accomplish their potential, all the young black women who now know there's more to life, than being a man's wife, those who are standing for something, be it for female rights or politics, they will not be silenced.

What this OranguTrump is displaying, is his fear and intimidation of women. He's admitted it, the only way he could get female attention was by paying them, and exerting power.

Men, if you have a fear of women, that's your problem, real men are not intimated by strong women, your fragile masculinity is not a woman's responsibility.

Meanwhile, his own wife is no one to be seen. That speaks volumes.
