The Trump administration is discontinuing Let Girls Learn, an initiative championed by Michelle Obama which aims to advance educational opportunities for young girls in developing countries.

The program was run primarily by the Peace Corps and the United States Agency for International Development, and helps girls with transportation, hygiene, financial issues, and other barriers that may prevent them from going to school.
