malala Malala Day: Support Education for Girls Malala Yousafzai, a teenage girl living in Pakistan, was shot in the head by the Taliban because she wanted an education for herself and other girls. The fighter in her is working hard to recover. The Office of the UN Special Envoy for Global Education has announced that November 10 as Malala day when they will focus on “Malala and the 32 million girls like Malala not at school “.

On Malala day, the UN Special Envoy for Global Education will travel to Pakistan and deliver to President Zardari a Petition with a call to action of making education a reality to all Pakistani children. The petition will also be given to the U.N. to ensure international support for the push for girls education and the right of every child to go to school.

Please sign Malala’s Petition that:

  • Calls on Pakistan to agree a plan to deliver education for every child.
  • Calls on all countries to outlaw discrimination against girls.
  • Calls on international organizations to ensure the world’s 61 million out of school children are in education by the end of 2015.
It is simple to sign Malala’s petition. Just go to the website I Am Malala – Malala’s Petition and enter your email address and click sign me up. Help support the goal of making sure that all kids go to school and learn.
There are many countries in which girls are denied an education. Before she was shot, Malala told her friends that her goal was to set up a foundation to help the 32 million girls around the world who are not at school. The U.N. Special Envoy for Global Education is announcing the creation of the Malala Foundation to continue Malala’s quest for girls to get educated.
