Malala Fund is working toward a world where all girls can learn for 12 years and lead without fear. Our special focus is on girls’ secondary education. We seek to influence at local, national and international levels for resources, social norms and policy changes needed to give all girls access to 12 years of quality, free and safe education.
We amplify girls’ voices. Malala Fund is building a movement of young education leaders who, like Malala, speak truth to power around the world. The girls we serve have high goals for themselves — and we have high expectations for decision-makers who can help them.
Malala Fund in Pakistan
Pakistan has made significant progress for girls’ education in the last decade — but 12 million girls are out of school, with only 13% of girls reaching grade nine.
Malala Fund is completing our registration in Pakistan, and we have been working in Pakistan through support to partners since our inception. In Pakistan, our partners drive solutions to barriers to girls’ education nationally and in their communities. They work to secure adequate funding for education and support young women to speak out for their rights. Malala Fund works nationally, with a particular focus in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab and Sindh provinces.
The main objective of Malala Fund in Pakistan is to support as many girls as possible in their ability to obtain free, safe and quality secondary education as guaranteed under the Constitution of Pakistan (Articles 25A & 37B).
Malala Fund’s objectives in Pakistan are: 1) The girls’ secondary education should be recognised as key political agenda in Pakistan; 2) The federal and provincial governments take policy and budgetary measures promoting girls’ and boys’ constitutional right to have equal access to quality secondary education; and 3) The work of civil society supports and strengthens environments that enable girls to continue education beyond primary school.
