Malala visits a school in Karachi to promote quality education for girls
Noble Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai visited a school in Karachi and emphasised improving the quality of education, particularly for girls.
Malala who also serves as the “UN Messenger of Peace” and focuses particularly on girls’ education, is in Pakistan to assess the situation in several regions of the country after it was recently devastated by terrible rains and floods.
Malala visited an elementary school located in the Central District of Karachi and remained there for an hour.
Her visit, according to Yousafzai’s non-profit organisation, Malala Fund, “aims to help keep international attention focused on the impact of floods in Pakistan and reinforce the need for critical humanitarian aid.”
The Nobel peace award winner, who now lived in Britain, returned to Pakistan 10 years after she was attacked in Swat for her advocacy for girls’ education.
