World Bank to invest $2.5 bn in education for girls

US First Lady Michelle Obama on Wednesday delivered a strong call for more education for women worldwide as the World Bank announced a new $2.5 billion initiative to foster schooling for girls. “The evidence is quite compelling: when we invest in girls’ education, when we embrace women in our workforce, that doesn’t just benefit them, it benefits all of us,” said Obama. Obama, who last year launched her own Let Girls Learn education initiative, was speaking at the Bank’s event to unveil its new funding for education projects for adolescent girls over the next five years.
