Malala Yousafzai Joins Hands with Apple To Empower Girls. Malala Yousafzai has joined the hands with Apple to be the face of education with thousand of unprivileged girls across the world. Malala Yousafzai has started efforts to empower girls and developed a charity organization Malala Fund to lift voice for the right of education of women.

Malala Yousafzai, winner of Nobel Peace Prize, has met with CEO of Apple Tim Cook and declared a joint venture of Malala Fund and Apple to get at least 100,000 underprivileged girls into education.

She talked about the partnership in an exclusive interview with The Independent. Apple CEO has also agreed to offer significant funding and resources to the Malala Fund to help the charity to attain its target of delivering education to girls in countries like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Turkey, Lebanon and Nigeria.

She has declared this joint venture alongside Apple CEO in Beirut, Lebanon. She said,

“I really wanted us to work together because Apple has expertise: they are expert in tech, they have resources and they have amazing and incredible people. Many of the champions who are supporting [the girls] are using technology and finding new ways to make it easier for girls to have access to education, whether it’s e-learning or getting STEM [science, technology, engineering, and maths] skills. So, I’m just really hopeful that we can reach as many young girls and as many young advocates as possible.”

When Malala met Cook back in October, they have discussed about the joint venture of Apple and Malala Fund, and have been discussing the possibilities on how technology could help get more needy girls into education.

Mr. Cook said that Apple’s expertise in tech “could bring a lot in support of Malala’s vision”.

He said that the gender inequality in developing countries like Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Lebanon is one of the biggest problem and Malala’s step will be very helpful in providing girls quality education in good institutes and environment.
