“We need to encourage girls that their voice matters. I think there are hundreds and thousands of Malalas out there.” - Malala
More than 120 million girls are out of school today. Secondary education for girls can transform communities, countries and our world. It is an investment in economic growth, a healthier workforce, lasting peace and the future of our planet. That’s why Malala Fund advocates — at the local, national and international levels — for resources and policy changes that improve access to education for girls.
Evidence for investing in girls' education
- Girls’ education strengthens economies and creates jobs.
- Educated girls are healthier citizens who raise healthier families.
- Communities are more stable — and can recover faster after conflict — when girls are educated.
- Investing in girls’ education is good for our planet.
Malala Fund invests in education activists and advocates who are driving solutions to barriers to girls’ education in their communities.
