Malala Day (November 10): Malala Yousafzai, a 14 year old schoolgirl in Pakistan, was brutally shot by the Taliban in retaliation for promoting girls' education in her country. Across the globe, millions of children, especially young girls, are denied access to education. This issue often goes unnoticed. We often feel helpless in these kind of situations, but there is a simple way to let your voice be heard in support of Malala. Here is how you can help:
- Sign the petition to call on Pakistan to agree to a plan to deliver education to all its children: http://educationenvoy.org/
- Spread the word. Inform your audience of the #IamMalala campaign and invite them to sign the petition.
- Spend November 10th in solidarity for Malala Day. Former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown - the UN Special Envoy for Global Education - and his wife Sarah will deliver this petition to the Pakistani president on this day.
