Malala Yousafzai believes that everyone should be able to access a safe and effective education - and she believes that this education will transform our world. In her book, I am Malala, she recounts her story of standing up for education in a community that tried to ban her from school. After enduring terrible violence, Malala now speaks out on behalf of children, and particularly girls, everywhere.
At Opportunity International, we also believe in the power of education. Through our innovative education finance initiatives we equip teachers and school proprietors, invest in students and provide resources to parents. These tools work to improve both the quality and availability of education around the world.
