Most individuals are aware of the shooting in 2012 of Malala Yousafzai that sparked national attention. Malala spoke up for the rights of education for young girls that were banned due to conflict with the Taliban in her country. However, most people probably are not aware of the progress she and the Malala Foundation have made globally to ensure young kids can attend school. I must admit I was one of those individuals; it wasn’t until recently that I attended a conference and listened to the Malala Foundation presentation that I was inspired to write a blog about it. The presentation was one of the most humbling and life changing speeches I have ever witnessed. The Foundation has recently released some amazing projects to draw awareness to the lack of education available to youth globally. Below I will be discussing some of the avenues they have taken to raise awareness, the mission/ vision, and the impact on various regions they have had.
