Celebrate Malala's Birthday with the Globe

End Trafficking

July 12, 2013

Malala Yousafzai is a courageous advocate for universal education and girls’ rights. In October 2012, she was targeted for her brave activism when the Taliban boarded her school bus and shot her and two other girls. After the shooting, Malala was flown from her home in Pakistan to the UK to recover. She is now back at school and is a fierce advocate for every child’s right to education.

July 12, 2013 is Malala’s 16th birthday. To celebrate Malala Day, the global community will come together to highlight the leading role that youth can play in enabling all children to get an education.

To participate, you can share this article, sign and share her petition, and use social media to spread the message that every child deserves an education.

      John, what are the odds you'll sub in a photo for that red avatar. Regardless, much enjoying your contributions and comments, and excited to be on this team together.
