Trudeau tweets $50M pledge for girls’ education around the world during Mandela festival

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted a $50 million pledge for education for girls and women around the world.

“This is amazing!” festival host Trevor Noah said as Trudeau’s tweet was shown on a big stadium screen.

Noah earlier recalled a comment by Mandela that poverty could be overcome through determined action. South Africa, where white minority rule ended a quarter-century ago, is struggling with one of the world’s highest rates of income inequality.
