We are in the middle of an Education Emergency
At this moment there are 57 million children without access to education and millions more who aren’t learning in school. Working together, we can lower that number to zero by 2015.
On July 12—less than a year after she was shot by the Taliban for her strong voice in this fight—Malala Yousafzai will mark her 16th birthday by delivering the highest leadership of the UN a set of education demands written by youth, for youth, to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. Show your support for universal education.
We can’t stand on the UN floor next to Malala—but we can all stand with her. Sign this letter to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to show your demand for emergency action in support for Malala’s education fight. Sign the “Stand with Malala” petition and watch Malala Yousafzai’s speech in full below.
