Girls Education Fund Announced at G-7
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Saturday that nearly $3 billion in pledges has been raised to help fund the education of vulnerable girls and women around the world.
Canada will contribute $300 million to the campaign. Germany, Japan, Britain and the World Bank are among the additional supporters.
The prime minister made the announcement on the last day of the G-7 summit which was held in Quebec.
Women's groups that had met with Trudeau on the sidelines of the summit welcomed the news of the generous pledges that exceeded the groups' expectations.
