At this very moment girls and women are leading movements for education and equality around the world.
At this very moment survivors of violence, harassment and discrimination are coming forward and pushing for justice.
At this very moment voices silenced for too long are being heard.
To anyone who is afraid to speak out or doubts she can make a difference, I want you to remember: When the whole world is silent, even one voice becomes powerful. You are not alone — but you will never know who stands with you if you don’t stand up first.
This is why creating a platform for girls is a central part of Malala Fund’s mission. We share the stories of incredible girls like Alma, a 16-year-old from Mexico who cleaned houses to pay for her own tuition fees; Peace, a 15-year-old from Nigeria who encourages parents in her community to send their daughters to school; and Nayir, a 14-year-old from Iraq who lived under ISIS occupation for three years, waiting for the day she could return to the classroom.
Each story inspires me to continue my fight for girls’ education, and I hope they inspire you too. Will you support our work and give these girls the chance to be heard?
Donate to Malala Fund today to let girls know they are not alone.
You can hear more about our work on “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.” I will be appearing on the third episode of the show, which premieres on Netflix on March 9. I hope you will watch it with the strong women in your life.
Support Malala's fight for girls' education
With more than 130 million girls out of school today, she needs your help to reach the most vulnerable girls denied an education.
Your gift today is an investment in Malala Fund programmes that help girls around the world go to school — from creating safe spaces for girls in Northern Nigeria, to training young Pakistani women as activists and providing STEM education to Syrian refugees.
