in speaking up for education
There are 600 million adolescent girls in the developing world. They are an 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 unlock their potential, and to demand change.
The Malala Fund’s solutions are grounded in inspired innovation: they are girl-centric approaches to education that support the Fund’s goal of creating a world where every girl reaches her true potential.
That is the question the Taliban asked when they stormed the 15 year old Malala’s school bus on October 9th 2012. They shot her in the head in an attempt to silence her and end her campaign for girls’ rights to go to school.
Her shooting, and her refusal to stand down from what she believed was right, brought to light the plight of millions of children around the world who are denied an education today.
We are committed to investing in the most innovative and effective projects around the world. We work with local partners as we believe that solutions must come from within the communities where change needs to happen. We scrutinize every investment and track its progress and impact.
