Every year, the Malala Fund celebrates Malala's birthday on July 12th. This year, as she turns 18, Malala is done with wishes. She wants action.
The shocking truth is that world leaders have the money to fully fund primary AND secondary education around the world – but they are choosing to spend it on other things, like their military budgets. In fact, if the whole world stopped spending money on the military for just 8 days, we could have the $39 billion still needed to provide 12 years of free, quality education to every child on the planet. If you believe education is a better investment for our future, declare your support for #BooksNotBullets. Help us celebrate Malala Day by posting a photo of you and your favorite book with #BooksNotBullets to show your support for free, quality education for all. Tell us why you love this book and why education is important to you.
You can find out more about Malala's courageous journey in HE NAMED ME MALALA, only in theaters this October. Watch the trailer here.
