Helping girls get an education

At the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, England, Malala, a 15-year-old from Pakistan, is fighting for her life. We’ve all heard how gunmen shot her in the head and neck because she advocated for education for girls.

In Pakistan, children now proudly wear “I am Malala” t-shirts. The attack, says former British prime minister Gordon Brown, has created a children’s movement in the country.

In the United States, the Women in the World Foundation is launching a campaign to collect funds to help girls like Malala. According to the foundation’s website at womenintheworld.org/malala, “One-hundred percent of the proceeds will go toward girls’ education on the ground in Pakistan and Afghanistan.”
