Ivanka Trump to promote women’s initiative in South America
“Ivanka Trump will travel to South America in September to focus on issues that make it difficult for women in developing countries to prosper financially, including lack of access to credit and limits on employment,” Darlene Superville reports for The Associated Press. Ms. Trump plans to visit Paraguay and Argentina on her trip.
The visit is part of an effort to promote the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative, or W-GDP, “a program started six months ago, by focusing on three key areas: job training, financial assistance and encouraging legal and regulatory changes.”
Her trip will serve as a chance to “advocate for laws and other changes that will allow women to access courts and other institutions, build credit, own and inherit property, travel freely and work the same jobs as men.”
Ivanka Trump launched the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity initiative in February with her father’s full backing and an initial investment of $50 million from the U.S. Agency for International Development.
