What would you say to girls’ education hero Malala Yousafzai? How about “happy birthday”?
This Friday, 500 students from more than 80 countries will convene at the United Nations for a special Youth Assembly, with Malala as the guest of honor and birthday girl. The purpose is to call for quality education for all, especially for girls.
This will be Malala’s first major public appearance since she was shot on her way to school last year. Since then, the movement for girls’ education has gained more momentum than ever - and her birthday is the perfect way to celebrate!
Not attending Malala Day at the UN? No problem! You can still wish Malala a happy birthday. Let’s take a stand for the 57 million children who are denied the right to an education. People around the world are taking action and wishing Malala a happy birthday, and you can too!
