On October 9, 2012, 15-year-old Malala Yousafzai of Pakistan was shot in the head by
the Taliban. It was a failed attempt to silence her — and her leading voice for girls'
education and the right of all children to go to school. We established the Malala
Fund on behalf of Malala and her family, working together with supporters of the
cause, including the United Nations Foundation and Girl Up, and within a community of
supportive organizations and individuals, to realize Malala's vision of education for
all girls. On July 12, 2013, on Malala's 16th birthday, the Malala Fund became its own
independent non-governmental organization. Beespace, a nonprofit incubator, provides
organizational support, and Shiza Shahid serves as executive director.
THE MALALA FUND SUPPORTS THE EDUCATION AND EMPOWERMENT OF GIRLS IN PAKISTAN AND AROUND THE WORLD
Through grants and partner collaborations with civil society organizations and
individuals focused on education, the Fund is advised by a committee comprising
education experts, entrepreneurs, and Malala with her family.
Before she was attacked, Malala was in the process of setting up an organization with
her friends to get girls into school and out of domestic labor. The first grant of the
Malala Fund will continue this process and provide a safe space for the girls,
resources for a positive learning environment and an incentive program for families.
"Today I'm going to announce the happiest moment in my life, and that is the first
grant of the Malala Fund," said Malala Yousafzai in a video
[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OS4FgZYs-eQ&list] shown to thousands attending the
April 4-5 Women in the World Summit at Lincoln Center, and streamed around the world.
"I invite all of you to support the Malala Fund and let us turn the education of 40
girls into 40 million girls.”
NOTE: MALALA FUND is giving you $850,000 USD [Eight Hundred and Fifty Thousand United
State Dollars] grant funds to ensure that 40 girls ranging in age from five to 12
years in your community, who would otherwise be engaged in domestic labor, or at high
risk of entering the workforce, are able to attend school. Working with the families,
the organization enrolled the girls in school, providing a safe space for convening
and with resources and support to adapt to an educational environment, such as school
uniforms, shoes and learning materials. Each family will receive a monthly stipend,
and the organization and the school will continue to work with the families and the
community to highlight the importance of girls’ education.
