December 7

Many people have probably already heard of Malala Yousafzai, an unbelievably brave human-rights advocate from Pakistan who is also the youngest-ever recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, having won it in 2014 at age 17. Malala's story is an incredible one: continuing going to school after warnings and threats from the Taliban, Malala was one day shot in the head on her way to school.  After a remarkable recovery, she has continued advocating for education, especially for girls, and has gained worldwide recognition and respect for her dedication and courage.

The Global Partnership for Education, a non-profit that works at all levels to give more children the education they deserve, teamed up with Malala to make this video, addressing some of the challenges facing education around the world and areas in which we have already made progress.  Let Malala's strength be a lesson to everyone, that we must never give up when fighting for a good cause.  As she states in the video, "Education is a right for every person.  Let us stand together and do what has been promised for so long."
