Stand with Malala: End the Education Emergency

Stand with Malala: End the Education Emergency

      Malala Yousafzai

      London, United Kingdom

On 15 June fourteen girls were murdered in Pakistan simply because they wanted an education. Many people know my story but there are stories every day of children fighting for an education. The basic right to education is under attack around the world.

We need change now and I need your help to achieve it.

You can help me and girls and boys across the world. We are asking the United Nations General Assembly to fund new teachers, schools, books and recommit to getting every girl and boy in school by December 2015.

This July 12th is my 16th birthday and I am personally delivering this petition to the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.

I became a victim of terrorism after I spoke out in favour of education of girls. These innocent girls killed in Pakistan have nothing to do with politics and only wanted to empower themselves through education.

If we want to bring change, if we want progress, if we want development, if we want the education of girls, we should be united. We should not wait. We should do it now.

      Education for girls has a direct impact on the success of lowering child mortality rates, increasing village productivity in capital, diversifying the options for their families and so much more. Please - bring progress, not provincial ideals to every nation, every village and to every girl.

      Because there's a lot of child labour, girls should have education.
