The White House is denying that it is ending former first lady Michelle ObamaMichelle LeVaughn Robinson ObamaJill Biden takes starring role at difficult Olympics Obama to adapt memoir 'Dreams From My Father' for young readers Harris emerges as main GOP foil on campaign trail MORE’s female education initiative following a CNN report earlier Monday.

"There have been no changes to the program," a White House spokeswoman told CNN on Monday evening.

An internal memo the network reported on earlier in the day said the White House would not continue with Obama’s “Let Girls Learn” program, which helps girls in developing countries seek educational opportunities.


"Moving forward, we will not continue to use the Let Girls Learn brand or maintain a stand-alone program,” an email from Sheila Crowley, the acting director of the Peace Corps, reportedly said.

The White House did not speak to the internal memo in its comment to CNN, nor did it provide details on the future of the initiative.

A source told a reporter from the Washington Examiner that the memo was sent due to “internal confusion.”
