“One child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world.”
Malala Yousufzai, a Pakistani activist, and Nobel laureate built up international recognition for her advocacy of girls’ education.

Malala’s inspiring story continues to enlighten millions, as she strives for education opportunities and equivalency worldwide.
“I tell my story not because it is unique, but because it is not. It is the story of many girls.”
Female education is crucial for achieving gender equality. It helps challenge harmful gender stereotypes, break down barriers to women’s participation in various sectors of community, and promote women’s rights.
“I raise my voice – not so that I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard.”
