Malala Yousafzai

Malala began her fight for girls from an education activist in Pakistan to the youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate.

An international fund created by Malala Yousafzai to make sure every girl gets the right to an education. Malala Yousafzai is a young woman born in Pakistan who spoke out about every girl's right to education. In doing so, she became a target and was shot in the head only to survive. She was forced out of her home country and needed to then live with her family in the United Kingdom. With her family on her side, she established the Malala Fund, which is a charity dedicated to giving every girl an opportunity to achieve the future she chooses. With this work, she received the Nobel Peace Prize in December of 2014. Malala continued her education and went to Oxford University to study Philosophy, Politics, and Economics. To this day she continues to spread the word and fight for girls' right to education.
