Happy Birthday Malala Yousafzai! And We Say #YesAllGirls!

Today Tues‌day is Malala's 19th birthday — and she’ll spend it traveling to one of the toughest places in the world to be a girl. 
Sign up to be the first to know where Malala lands on her birthday. 

Four years ago, the UN named Jul‌y 1‌2 #MalalaDay. And Malala uses her birthday to shine a spotlight on girls struggling to go to school. But she can't do it alone.

Support Malala as she travels to meet girls around the world.

At 17, Malala visited families of schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram and told Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan to do more to bring them home.

At 18, she opened a school for adolescent Syrian girls in Lebanon who fled their homes to escape war and violence.

This year, Malala's birthday is happening in the midst of the largest refugee crisis in 70 years.

More than ever we need you to join Malala and declare that #YesAllGirls deserve an education.

Wherever Malala goes, our supporters have been beside her -- acting as a megaphone to amplify the voices of girls struggling to go to school.

This Malala Day, help Malala remind the world that they have promised 12 years of school to all girls, #YesAllGirls, everywhere.

With gratitude,
 Malala Fund Team
