Tha B.U.M.P. Host Let Girls Learn Day!

In 2015, Michelle Obama pioneered this initiative #letgirlslearn. She recognized that adolescent girls face multiple challenges in pursuing an education, Let Girls Learn is employing a holistic approach to change the perception of the value of girls at the individual, community and institutional levels; foster an enabling environment for adolescent girls’ education; and engage and equip girls to make life decisions and important contributions to society.

Tha Brown Urban Mother Partnership will host “Let Girls Learn Day” on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at the Mount Vernon Public Library from 10am to 12noon. Let Girls Learn Day in Mount Vernon is only a dream and understanding that reading is fundamental and emphasis on community-led solutions to encourage adolescent girls complete their education. Girls in grades 1-6 are being invited to the library to engage with women from different careers and cultures that will speak on the importance of education and reading. The Girls will receive free books donated from residents of Mount Vernon and participate in two STEM challenges while being encouraged by local women as they chat and chew on cupcakes and milk.
