Transcript of Vital Voices Celebrates Malala Day

Here are
ways you can celebrate Malala's 16th birthday and support girls' education globally.
The assassination attempt failed to silence her – rather, it helped ignite voices from around the world to stand up to promote girls' education globally.
At the Global Leadership Awards in April, Vital Voices honored Malala with the 2013 Global Trailblazer Award for her extraordinary courage. She has shown all of us that one person – no matter what age - can make a difference.
In November 2012, Malala Yousafzai, her father, Ziauddin, and a group of supporters, engaged Vital Voices to establish and manage the Malala Fund to help realize Malala's vision of education for all girls. Hosted by Vital Voices, and supported by key partners, including the UN Foundation and Girl Up, the Malala Fund was advised by a core committee comprising education experts, international development experts, entrepreneurs, and Malala with her family.
This spring, the first grant of the Malala Fund was issued, supporting a program in Pakistan to ensure that 40 girls ranging in age from five to 12—who would otherwise be engaged in domestic labor, or at high risk of entering the workforce—will be able to attend school.
On July 12, her 16th birthday, Malala will speak to the United Nations in New York about her vision to transform the education of 40 girls...
into 40 million girls
