Celebrating Malala Day, 2018

Malala s Story Malala Fund

Malala Day is celebrated July 12 in honor of Malala Yousafzai’s birthday. It also marks the anniversary of Yousafzai leading the first Youth Takeover of the UN in 2013. Malala Yousafzai holds Pakistan’s first National Youth Peace Prize, is a Nobel laureate and activist dedicated to protecting and encouraging girl’s education and equality.

From Malala.org:

Determined to continue their campaign for girls’ education, Malala and Ziauddin set up Malala Fund, an organisation dedicated to give all girls access to education.

Over the next few years, Malala meets with girls around the world and many heads of state, carrying her message of girls’ education and equality.

Before beginning university, Malala travelled to North America, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America on her Girl Power Trip. She was on a mission to meet girls and listen to their stories. Everywhere she went, she heard directly from girls about barriers to their education, like violence, poverty, child marriage and machismo culture. Malala brought their messages and concerns directly to world leaders — she held over a dozen meetings with presidents and prime ministers urging them to invest in girls’ education
