Custom portrait for Let Girls Learn Champion First Lady Michelle Obama
Shown above is a custom Little Love Press fashion illustration portrait of the First Lady Michelle Obama with her daughters Malia and Sasha during their tour of London promoting their Let Girls Learn initiative. The First Lady is in Preen and Malia is wearing a Shoshanna dress.
The First Lady, traveling with Malia, Sasha, and her mother, Marian Robinson, made an announcement in London earlier this week that the United States and the United Kingdom will be launching a $200 million partnership to support the education of 62 million schoolgirls in countries such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Let Girls Learn is dedicated to helping young girls around the world gain access to quality education, especially in conflict and crisis-ridden countries. The initiative promotes school enrollment of young girls and the involvement of the girls’ families and their communities in their education
The news of the initiative’s partnership has a special meaning for Little Love Press, a supporter of EmpowerKids Foundation. Since its inception, the Foundation has strived to enrich the education of children in underprivileged communities and has made a significant impact in improving the school enrollment and attendance of young girls in India.
The White House has recently stated that “When a girl receives a quality education, she is more likely to earn a decent living, raise a healthy, educated family and improved the quality of life for herself, her family and her community.”
