(CNN) - First Lady Michelle Obama will deliver Saturday's weekly address for Mother's Day weekend, the White House announced Friday.
The White House said her remarks will focus on the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls in Nigeria by an Islamist militant group and, more broadly, about education around the world.
"As the mother of two young daughters, Mrs. Obama is taking the opportunity to express outrage and heartbreak the President and she share over the kidnapping of more than 200 Nigerian girls from their school," White House spokesman Eric Schultz said.
"The First Lady hopes the courage of these young girls serve as an inspiration for every girl and every boy in our country to recommit themselves to their own education and a call to action for people around the world to fight to ensure that every girl receives the education that she deserves."
Earlier this week, the first lady tweeted a photo of herself with a sign that said: #BringBackOurGirls
Mrs. Obama has joined the President in the past in delivering the White House weekly address, but this will be her first time delivering it solo.
