  • Let's Celebrate Malala Day

    Every year on the 12 th of July the world celebrates Malala day.

    In the name of Malala Yousafzai who at the age of 17 was the youngest recipient
    ever of the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Born on the 12 th of July 1992 in Pakistan Malala started advocating for womens
    rights in education from 2008.

    On July 12, 2013, Malala Yousafzai, a sixteen-year-old Pakistani girl engaged in
    the promotion of women’s education, delivered an impassioned speech at the
    United Nations headquarters on the need for gender equality in education. The
    address saw several rounds of standing ovations for the teenager and the day,
    July 12, was soon declared as Malala Day in honour of the young activist.

    Prior to this Malala had a regular blog in BBC Urdu on her life during Taliban
    occupation of Swat. She soon attracted public attention from across the world
    and was sought after for interviews in newspapers and television shows.
    In October 2012, Malala was attacked by Taliban gunmen and was in a critical
    condition. Soon after, she was sent to the United Kingdom to recover.
    Despite the attack by Taliban, an undeterred Malala soon returned to the public
    arena, more fierce in her views than before, and continued her advocacy for
    gender rights.

    Based out of Birmingham, she founded the ‘Malala Fund’, which is
    a non-profit organisation that helps young girls go to school. She also co-
    authored a book by the name, “I am Malala” that became an international
    bestseller.
