Former U.S. President Bill Clinton is in Kenya promoting equal opportunities for girls in education.

Clinton said Friday that while intelligence is equally distributed across the world, opportunities are not.

Clinton is visiting Kenya with his daughter Chelsea on a nine-day tour of Clinton Foundation projects in Africa.

Chelsea says the world has made tremendous progress in getting girls into primary schools because there are now 96 girls for every 100 boys in primary school, but enough has not been done to help girls transition from primary school to secondary schools. Bill Clinton says individuals should avoid doing things that will keep girls out of secondary schools and restrict their opportunities.
