Thanks to your support we have helped achieve over 700,000 sign-ups for the United Nations Special Envoy for Education petition. On Saturday 10 November Gordon Brown, the United Nations Special Envoy for Education, will hand the petition to Pakistan’s President Zardari, urging him to make girls education a top priority.
15-year-old Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head because she is a girl and dared to campaign for every girl’s right to an education. Her story moved people everywhere to call for education to be a reality for all girls, no matter where they’re born.
You can continue to support girls education by supporting Plan’s Because I am a Girl campaign and Take the Vow so girls can escape early and forced marriage and stay in education.
Plan’s ‘Because I am a Girl’ campaign will support four million girls to get the education, skills and support they need to move themselves from poverty to opportunity.
