Ivanka Trump Tours Africa to Promote $50 million US Initiative

Ivanka Trump began a four-day tour of Africa April 14 to promote a US$50 million United States initiative aimed at encouraging women’s employment in developing countries.

White House Advisor Ivanka Trump attends the African Women’s Economic Empowerment Dialogue meeting at the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) headquarters, as part of her four-day trip to Africa to promote a global women’s initiative in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia April 15, 2019.

“Fundamentally we believe that investing in women is a smart development policy and it is a smart business,” White House adviser, Ivanka Trump said in Addis Ababa.

The Women’s Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP) initiative aims to economically empower 50 million women by 2025. President Donald Trump, Ivanka’s father, has directed United States Aid to allocate an initial US$50 million to the fund.

Ivanka Trump is due to take part in a World Bank policy summit and then visit Ivory Coast to promote female entrepreneurs in the country’s cocoa industry.
