What We Do

Inspired by co-founders Malala and Ziauddin Yousafzai, Malala Fund's goal is to enable girls to complete 12 years of safe, quality education so that they can achieve their potential and be positive change-makers in their families and communities. We work with partners all over the world helping to empower girls and amplify their voices; we invest in local education leaders and programmes; and we advocate for more resources for education and safe schools for every child.

We amplify girls voices, providing them with a platform to connect with the Malala Fund and each other. By standing together, girls can dream big and know they are not alone.

"I am not a lone voice, I am many." - Malala

We invest in local leaders and organisations that are delivering quality secondary education for girls. We believe that real and lasting change for girls will ultimately come from empowered local leadership as well as increased global commitment to girls' secondary education.

Our Programmes 

We advocate for the resources and policy changes needed to enable all girls to receive safe, quality secondary education. Malala and Ziauddin are tireless in their efforts to persuade global and local leaders to prioritise girls education and dedicate adequate resources to schools.
