SIDI KACEM: Ivanka Trump says families, communities and
countries flourish when women are invested in and included in the
economy.
President Donald Trump’s daughter and White House adviser saw
real life examples in Morocco on Thursday when she met four women
who are benefiting from changes that allow them to own land.
Ivanka Trump spearheads a US drive to help women in developing
countries with skills training, access to capital and land
ownership.
One of the women, Aicha Bourkib, embraced Ivanka Trump and kissed
her hands as the group met in an olive grove. The 59-year-old
housewife and mother of four cultivates olive trees and vegetables
on land she recently bought.
Bourkib also has two cows and wants to create a dairy cooperative
in her village.
