Malala Donates More Than 7 Crores To Build A School For Girls In Swat Valley
Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest Nobel Prize laureate.
The young activist has gathered her fair share of hate for as long as her story has come to surface, however, Malala has proved with her actions time and again, how committed she is to her homeland. Malala hopes for Pakistan to progress and is keen too play her part in the development.
Malala’s latest initiative includes her donation of more than 7 crore to build a school for girls in Swat Valley!
The Malala Fund in cooperation with The Big Heart Foundation (TBHF) has donated US$700,000 to build a girl’s school in Pakistan.
The school will be built in Swat Valley. It is not only Malala’s home district but it is also the area which had been targeted by terrorists specifically.
The announcement for the donation was made at an Oxford event, which was attended by Malala as well as the TBHF humanitarian envoy.
“I overwhelmingly thank The Big Heart Foundation for believing in my dream of a world where girls can choose their own future path. With their support, the Malala Fund can provide education for girls in my hometown, Swat Valley in Pakistan,” said Malala on the occasion.
Currently, the school is in its second phase of construction. The expected date of completion is April 2018, and once completed the school will enroll around 350 girls.
