Apple To Support Girls' Education With Malala Fund

It was announced on Sunday that Apple would become the first Laureate partner of the Malala Fund, which advocates for the right of every girl to attend 12 years of quality education.

Before the United Nations named her 16 birthday "Malala Day", before meeting President Obama in the Oval Office, and before becoming the youngest Nobel Prize laureate, an anonymous group of artists produced this widely seen music video to help Malala Yousafzai create a worldwide movement for the right of all children to education.

Apple will offer technical know-how and resources to the organisation founded by Malala Yousafzai, the education campaigner and Nobel Peace Prize victor. Tim Cook said that Apple's expertise in tech "could bring a lot in support of Malala's vision".

Currently, the Malala Fund supports education programs in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Turkey, Lebanon, India, Jordan, and many other countries.

Malala's nonprofit the Malala Fund helps fund education for young girls across India and Latin America. "We are honored to help [Yousafzai] extend the important work she is doing to empower girls around the world". Yousafzai is planned to express her views at the approaching World Economic forum in Switzerland. "So, things started happening and I just can't believe it has been a few months and now we are here in Lebanon and announcing our partnership for the coming years".

"My dream is for every girl to choose her own future", Yousafzai said in the release. There are an estimated 130 million girls who are out of school and unable to access basic education.

It appears the evidence-lacking Russian collusion investigation may be replaced by a far more serious inquiry into the FBI. Republican congressman Bob Goodlatte is among those who argue there is a "magnitude of insider bias" on Mueller's team.

For those unaware of who Malala Yousafzai is, she is a Pakistani activist for female education.

With Apple's funding, the Malala Fund will be able to double the number of educational grants it's able to give out.

Yousafzai will continue her crusade for girls' education when she speaks at the in Davos, Switzerland on Thursday.

Since then, Yousafzai has continued to advocate for girls' access to education.

"I promise to keep fighting until the day that every girl can put on her uniform, pack up her books and walk to school without fear", she wrote in a blog post earlier this year.
