Like you, I was shocked when the young Pakistani education advocate, Malala Yousafzai, was shot for supporting girls' education in her country. In response, we started a petition drive to send a message our our leaders that we stand with Malala and support the right of all young people worldwide to receive an equitable access to a quality education, including girls who make up the majority of out-of-school youth.
In two weeks, on July 12, 2013, Malala Yousafzai will celebrate her 16th birthday. GCE-US staff and students will be with her at the UN on this special day!
Can you join me in sending a birthday present to Malala by signing the petition and saying we all support her courageous advocacy for education?
Join me by signing the petition, here.
We will share with Malala and our political leaders your support for Education for All.
