They talked to members of the educational support program for girls and engaged them in skill-building workshops. The two representatives met with local girls' education non-profit organizations and beneficiaries of programs that help adolescent girls reach their full potential through education.

The Obama Foundation launched its Girls Opportunity Alliance last year to support adolescent girls around the world. In Vietnam, Girls Opportunity Alliance is cooperating with Room to Read, an international non-profit organization working on literacy and gender equality in education, mainly that of young girls.
