President Donlad Trump hosted two Chibok school girls at the White House on Wednesday.

The girls — Joy Bishara and Lydia Pogu — who escaped from Boko Haram in 2014, after the famous Chibok abduction, met the president in the company of his daughter, Ivanka Trump.

They graduated from Canyonville Christian Academy in Oregon in February 2017.

The girls, who are being sponsored by the Jubilee Campaign, a human rights group in Virginia, have gone on to open a GoFundme account to raise money for their university education at  Southeastern University in Florida.

Joy and Lydia High School Graduation

“Hello our names are Lydia Pogu and Joy Bishara. We are two of the girls that escaped the Boko Haram who attack our school in Chibok, Nigeria,” the duo said via GoFundme.

“We finally achieved our dream and have graduated high school. We need funds for living expenses through the summer as we leave boarding high school Canyonville Christian Academy for Southeastern University.”

The details of their meeting with Trump remain unknown.

      Dear EDUMOH,this is the most uncharitable comment I have read about the Chibok girls. These ones have beaten all the odds which were against them, and have projected themselves to where they are now, and people like you would stay here in Nigeria to make such comments. To say the least, this is not fair. Please if you have no positive comments to pass, stay off. It will interest you to know that the plural of this is these, and you were referring to two of the Chibok girls who earlier escaped.please note.
