In addition, as outlined in GPE partners’ 3-year Strategic Plan, we are actively working toward the goal of having All girls in GPE-endorsed countries successfully complete primary school and go to secondary school in a safe, supportive learning environment.”
The world is encouraged as Malala Yousafzai continues her fight since being shot in the head by the Taliban simply because she wanted to go to school. This weekend when she stood up for the first time since being laid low by the dreadful attack, the world witnessed her standing up for 32 million girls around the world who are denied daily their right to go to a classroom and learn.
November 10th was a global day of action for Malala and 32 million girls more. On that day, one month following the assassination attempt, as UN Special Envoy for Global Education, Gordon Brown the UN special envoy traveled to Pakistan and delivered to President Zardari the million-plus petition to make education a reality for all Pakistani children. We will let the world know that we will no longer accept keeping girls out of school. You can find out more and sign the petition by visiting www.iammalala.org.”
As part of our support for Malala, the Partnership for Global Justice is pleased to announce that our next booklet – What Price a Girl’s Life is dedicated to Malala and will be available from the Partnership in December 2012.
