Celebrate Malala Day!

July 11, 2013



What is Malala Day?


Malala Yousafzai has marked her 16th birthday by giving her first high-level public appearance and statement around the importance of education. Her birthday, also known as Malala Day, is a new beginning for education and the leading role that empowered youth can play in enabling all children to receive an education.

In support of the United Nations Secretary-General’s Global Education First Initiative, young leaders and youth from 80 different countries have convened in support of reaching the goal of all children, especially girls, in school and learning by 2015.
