A beacon of hope, advocate, and warrior for girls' education, Malala Yousafzai has inspired people everywhere to stand up and fight for what they believe in.
At the young age of 20, she boasts a resume featuring multiple books, films, and holds the title for being the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner in history. Now, on her her latest milestone towards empowering women, Yousafzai is partnering with Apple to help advocate for girl's rights to a free, safe, and decent education.
With the help of the major tech company, the Malala Fund will be able to double the amount of grants provided to help fund secondary education for girls in both India and Latin America. Together, Apple and Yousafzai are hoping to support over 100,000 girls to gain access to education.
"We believe that education is a great equalizing force, and we share Malala Fund's committment to give every girl an opportunity to go to school," Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a statement.
While the exact amount of money being donated by Apple has not been specified, the funds will also go towards helping the Malala Fund scale its "technology, curriculum and research into policy changes."
Yousafzai's goals and mission to empower girls across the world is nothing short of spectacular. Partnering with Apple is sure to bring incredible things and providing over 100,000 young women with access to safe education is an incredible goal.
Yousafzai has also released a statement regarding the monumental partnership stating:
"Through both their innovations and philanthropy, Apple has helped educate and empower people around the world. I am grateful that Apple knows the value of investing in girls and is joining Malala Fund in the fight to ensure all girls can learn and lead without fear."
