Malala Yousafzai, the 16 year old educational campaigner from Swat Valley, Pakistan, will speak about her passionate fight for girls’ education. One year ago, Malala was targeted by the Taliban and shot in the head as she was returning from school on a bus. She miraculously survived and continues her campaign for education. She is the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Malala champions universal access to education through the Malala Fund, which focuses on helping girls around the world go to school and raise their voices for the right to education.
The event will be streamed live online at World Bank Live.
