Malala’s Story 

Malala Yousafzai carries an inspirational story of activism for girl’s education. The world first discovered her as an ambitious school girl, with a passion for civic engagement in her community. Malala’s early pursuit of knowledge and love for learning paved the way for revolutionary campaigning of girls’ education in her hometown of Swat Valley, Pakistan.

Through her courageous and persistent message, she became the youngest recipient to receive the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009. The Malala Fund was set-up to bring a much-needed platform for vulnerable girls around the world. The successful project targets regions prone to educational inequality concerning women and girls. The Malala Fund’s incredible global reach spans countries like Nigeria, Afghanistan and Pakistan, including Syrian refugees living in Lebanon and Jordan.
