Ivanka Trump in Ethiopia to 'promote women'

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-47925874

President Donald Trump's eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, has arrived in Ethiopia to promote a US government initiative aimed at advancing women's participation in the workplace.
Ms Trump will visit women working in the coffee industry and a female-run textile facility.

Launched in February, the Women's Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP) initiative aims to train women worldwide to help them get well-paying jobs.
The project is financed by a $50m fund within the US international development aid agency (USAid).

Ms Trump, who also serves as an adviser to her father, will attend a World Bank policy summit while in Ethiopia.

She tweeted ahead of the trip that she was "excited".

4. as the saying goes, even a blind squirrel can find a nut sometime.

77 percent of Africa's population is under age 35 and any exposure they can get is helpful.

7. Donald's got big plans for her and Jared;

that's why they're flying around meeting all these people in other countries. He wants to let them take over so he can concentrate on cheating at golf.
