Malala and her father Ziauddin Yousafzai are coming to Pakistan to promote education for girls

For a cause

Malala Fund co-founders Malala Yousafzai and Ziauddin Yousafzai are soon arriving in Lahore, for a series of interactions with key stakeholders in education, government, the development community, media, digital cultural creators, students and youth, along with advocates from the Malala Fund Education Champion Network and partners. While in Pakistan, the co-founders will also join an eminent academic delegation from the Oxford Pakistan Programme [OPP] and the Malala Fund team across a series of events to increase awareness of the OPP within Pakistan, with a specific focus on science education for Pakistani girls. The promotion of secondary school-aged girls’ access to science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics [STEAM] education is a major pillar of the Malala Fund in Pakistan who are currently working with the Ministry of Federal Education to implement an ambitious programme on STEAM Education with other partners to reform 13,000 government high schools across Pakistan. During this trip, co-founder Malala Yousafzai will also highlight work with the Oxford Pakistan Programme (OPP), an initiative led by her alma mater. The OPP initiative aims to bridge Oxford and Pakistan’s academic communities, including a newly established fellowship with Malala Fund, Lady Margaret Hall (LMH), the OPP and Oxford’s Department of Education.
