Young leaders in sub-Saharan Africa, Michelle Obama has a message for you [video]

The YALI Network connects more than 230,000 young leaders in sub-Saharan Africa.

In March and April, the #Africa4Her campaign is helping women and girls in Africa realize their full potential as leaders in business, government and education. It’s an effort close to first lady Michelle Obama’s heart. In a video message to her younger self, the first lady remembers working hard to disprove people who doubted what she could accomplish.

YALI Network members have made almost 19,000 pledges on behalf of women and girls and are taking the YALI Network online course “Understanding the Rights of Women and Girls.”

Join the YALI Network and answer the first lady’s call to support girls and women in Africa and across the world.
