Malalalalalalala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who stood up to the Tal
Transcript of Malalalalalalala Yousafzai, the Pakistani girl who stood up to the Tal
The Malala Fund
There are 600 million teenage girls in the developing world. They are a undeniable force for social and economic impact. But only if given the opportunity. Around the world, girls are denied a formal education because of social, economic, legal and political factors. And in being denied an education, society loses one of its greatest and most powerful resources.
The Malala Fund aims to change that.
Education empowers girls to raise their voices, to achieve their potential, and to demand change.The Malala Fund’s solutions are girl-centric approaches to education that support the Fund’s goal of creating a world where every girl reaches her true potential.
"An 11-year-old who was told she's going to be killed because she simply wants to go to school. Just imagine the courage that she has shown. As far as I'm concerned, Malala is an incredible personality of the 21st century."
"It's great not only for her, for her family, but for the whole nation."
"My point of view on Malala is that the whole thing is a drama. There are lots of issues here, like drone strikes, other things happening. You are ignoring all the issues and following a girl." - BAD
"She is an extremely intelligent and brave girl. I want to be like her. She did a lot of work for the education of girls."
At the moment, Malala lives in the United Kingdom and she promises to continue her work.
Who is Malala?
That is the question the Taliban asked when they stormed the 15 year old's school bus on October 9th 2012. They shot her in the head in an attempt to silence her and end the campaign for girls rights to go to school. Thankfully, she survived, and has continued to speak out on the importance of education. Malala Yousafzai was born on July 12, 1997, in Mingora, Pakistan. As a child, she became an advocate for girls' education, this led to a Taliban putting a death threat against her. She has been nominated twice for the noble peace prize, once in 2013 and again in 2014.
There was a day called Malala day on her 16th birthday in 2013.
