Malala Fund Malala Fund breaks down the barriers preventing more than 130 million girls around the world from going to school. Malala is fighting to give back to girls what poverty, war and discrimination tried to take away. You can donate to help give all girls the opportunity to learn and lead. Malala and Ziauddin Yousafzai founded Malala Fund in 2013 to champion every girl’s right to 12 years of free, safe, quality education. Malala Fund works in regions where the most girls miss out on secondary education. Our priority countries are Afghanistan, Brazil, India, Lebanon, Nigeria, Pakistan and Turkey. Investing in local education activists Through our Gulmakai Network, we invest in local educators and advocates — the people who best understand girls in their communities — in regions where the most girls are missing out on secondary school. Advocating to hold leaders accountable Malala Fund advocates — at local, national and international levels — for resources and policy changes needed to give all girls a secondary education. The girls they serve have high goals for themselves — and they have high expectations for leaders who can help them. Amplifying girls’ voices They believe girls should speak for themselves and tell leaders what they need to learn and achieve their potential. They amplify girls’ voices and share their stories through Assembly, our digital publication and newsletter.
