Malala keen to help improve girls’ education in Pakistan

Malala keen to help improve girls’ education in Pakistan

The youngest Nobel Prize winner, Malala Yousufzai, has expressed her keen interest in helping to bring about improvement in girls’ education in Pakistan.

This she said at a meeting with Karamat Ali, executive director of the Pakistan Institute of Labour Education and Research, and other Pakistanis in Birmingham, England, early this month. According to Ali, the Malala Fund is currently working on girls’ education all over the world, and she was briefed about the status of girls’ education in Pakistan.

The Nobel laureate is very keen to work for the universalisation of education in all South Asian countries, and in this regard she has emphasised the restoration of peaceful conditions in South Asia, Ali said in a statement. 

Malala appreciated the efforts of people who were working for the restoration of peace between Pakistan and India. The statement further quoted her as saying that although resources were available with the South Asian countries, most of the resources were spent on defence and purchase of arms. Instead of spending buying arsenal, she said, the governments in the region should spend on the social welfare of the people, as the majority of them were poor and deprived.
