Malala's hope

To Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari, PM Raja Pervez Ashraf and KP Province Governor Syed Masood Kausar:

We call on Pakistan to agree to a plan to deliver education for every child through building schools, training teachers and funding families whose daughters regularly attend school. All governments and international organizations must play their part to ensure that the millions of children who are currently out of school, get an education.

The Taliban drove up to Malala's school and shot her in the neck and brain. Despite being hit at close range, this fourteen-year-old champion of girls’ education is surviving.

Many in Pakistan and around the world have now united behind Malala and her cause. This is a tipping point moment and if we act now we can help achieve the very thing she was targeted for: let’s call on the government of Pakistan to fund girls attending school, starting with her province.

This is our chance to turn Malala’s horror into hope. At her very young age she is an example of courage and determination, but now she is fighting to survive, and it’s our turn to help her win her dream. Sign the petition -- when 1 million people have signed the UN education envoy, Gordon Brown, will deliver our call in person to the President of Pakistan, and the Pakistani media.
