Apple Teams With Malala Yousafzai To Help Fund Education For Girls

Apple will become the fund's first Laureate partner enabling a significant expansion of Yousafzai's effort to support girls education and advocate for equal opportunity it said

Apple will be the fund's first Laureate partner and will enable the fund to significantly expand its efforts to support girls' education and advocate for equal opportunity.

In a Canadian first, Apple CEO Tim Cook sits down with CTV's Your Morning for an exclusive interview to discuss his company's new partnership with Nobel Peace Prize victor Malala Yousafzai. Now that they have Apple's backing, Malala Fund is planning to double the number of grants awarded through their Gulmakai Network. Additionally, the tech giant will monitor Malala Fund's policy modifications that are required to globally help girls complete education. Tim Cook will also join the Malala Fund's leadership council.

The Malala Fund aims to extend secondary education to more than 100,000 underprivileged girls. "She's one of the most inspiring figures of our time, and we are honoured to help her extend the important work she is doing to empower girls around the world", Cook further added.

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

Malala also spoke out about the news thanking Apple and Tim Cook for the support. Apple's proprietary year-long curriculum for students in kindergarten through college teaches students computing skills to prepare them for future careers in app development. As of fall 2017, the 20-year-old is studying at the University of Oxford. Led by her, Malala Fund focuses on empowering every girl by providing free, safe, and qualitative education. That is the education of 130 million girls who are out of school.

"Through both their innovations and philanthropy, Apple has helped educate and empower people around the world", she said in a statement.

Yousafzai has been championing girls' education since the age of 11, when the Taliban overran her hometown of Mingora, Pakistan, and threatened to destroy the schools. Then, it was only a matter of what they could do together rather than whether they could.

The Malala Fund was set up back in 2013 by Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai.

Over the years in the public eye and in the face of the media and the world, she has continued to support and fight for women's issues, peace and education for all children. Yousafzai is scheduled to speak at the upcoming World Economic forum in Davos, Switzerland.
