Twenty-year-old Yousafzai was shot in the head by a masked Taliban gunman in 2012 and has made it her life's work to advocate for girls' education and equality. Apple's specific financial and in-kind commitment to the Malala Fund awaits further light, but the new partnership is expected to expand MalalaFund's initiatives to India and Latin America. The initial objective is to spread secondary educational opportunities to over and above 100,000 girls.
The joint project aims to combine Apple's forty years of expertise in the world of technology and Yousafzai's aim to secure education for underprivileged girls worldwide through the Malala Fund.
The courageous Malala Yousafzai looked at the President and told him that his policy of drone attacks was killing innocent civilians in Pakistan and stoking terrorism. Together, the Malala Fund and Apple will champion "every girl's right to 12 years of free, safe, quality education".
She continued by saying, "Through both their innovations and philanthropy, Apple has helped educate and empower people around the world". Malala Fund now operates in Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, Nigeria and countries where there are Syrian refugees, like Lebanon and Jordan. The Malala Fund is her vehicle for doing so.
The joint initiative was devised after Cook and Yousafzai met in Oxford in October, after the tech boss reached out to the women's rights campaigner.
