Students Stand with Malala

Watch HE NAMED ME MALALA with your students

"My father did not want me to teach. I was a defiant son. I believed in the power of education to change the world, so I put every penny I had into opening a school for girls. Malala grew into the incredible young woman she is today, because of great teachers (okay, including me).

If you believe in teachers' power to change the world, stand with us."

Ziauddin Yousafzai, Malala's Father

About the Film

HE NAMED ME MALALA is an intimate portrait of Malala Yousafzai, who was wounded when Taliban gunmen opened fire on her and her friends' school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley.

The then 15-year-old teenager, who had been targeted for speaking out on behalf of girls’ education in her region of Swat Valley in Pakistan, was shot in the head, sparking international media outrage. An educational activist in Pakistan, Yousafzai has since emerged as a leading campaigner for the rights of children worldwide and in December 2014, became the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.

The film is available now on DVD and VOD in the US. National Geographic Channel will broadcast the global television premiere of HE NAMED ME MALALA on 29 February, 2016.
