Apple becomes Malala Fund’s first Laureate partner to support girl’s education

Malala Fund is founded by youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousufzai and her father Ziauddin in order to provide girls the much needed education and empowerment.

In its first ever partnership, the Malala fund has joined hands with Apple  which will provide it with useful technology, curriculum and education policy research. Reportedly Apple will also help to double the number of grants awarded through its Gulmakai Network and launch its funding programs in India and Latin America, with the goal of extending secondary education to more than 100,000 girls.

Malala commented on the partnership saying, “My dream is for every girl to choose her own future.” Through both their innovations and philanthropy, Apple has helped educate and empower people around the world. I am grateful that Apple knows the value of investing in girls and is joining Malala Fund in the fight to ensure all girls can learn and lead without fear.”

Malala has worked for women empowerment after she survived a fatal gunshot wound to the head by Taliban on her way to school.

Apple CEO, Tim Cook was equally privileged to be a part of the Malala Fund. He said, Malala is a courageous advocate for equality. She’s one of the most inspiring figures of our time, and we are honored to help her extend the important work she is doing to empower girls around the world.”
Malala Fund helps girls across Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Nigeria and countries where there are Syrian refugees, like Lebanon and Jordan to get access to the education and freedom that they deserve.
