I am sure most of us know the story of Malala Yousefzai who was shot by the Taliban for advocating education for girls. News.
Malala has dedicated her childhood to championing education for girls like her in Pakistan. As she lies in a hospital bed, a tragic victim of Taliban gunmen, let's help make her dream come true.
One part of Pakistan has already started a successful programme of paying families which send their girls to school regularly. But in Malala's province the government is dragging its feet. Senior politicians have offered Malala help, and if we act now we can get them to commit to rolling this out nationwide.
Before the media spotlight moves on, let's raise our voices to demand that the government announces funding for all Pakistani girls who attend school. In days the UN Education Envoy will meet Pakistan's President Zardari and he says hand delivering 1 million signatures will strengthen his case. So let's help make Malala's dream come true and sign this.
