Hate her all you want but Malala Yousafzai is definitely committed to her homeland. She not only wants to see it progress and develop but also wants to play a part in it.

 

Despite the hate Pakistanis so consistently shower on her, Malala remains steadfast and keeps on involving herself in initiatives for the betterment of the country

It is no secret that the Nobel Laureate is a female education activist

The Malala Fund in cooperation with The Big Heart Foundation (TBHF) has donated US$700,000 to build a girls’ school in Pakistan.

The school is being built in Swat valley, which is Malala’s home district. It is also an area where schools have been specifically targeted by the terrorists.

The donation for the school was announced at an Oxford event, which was attended by Malala and an envoy of TBHF humanitarian envoy Shaikh Sultan Bin Ahmad Al Qasimi

The donation at the moment covers half of the financial costs of the project. It will be used to built a number of things in the schools, such as science labs, IT labs, staff rooms, principal’s room, reception, playground facilities and classrooms.

The school will also have a library, laboratory, an activity hall, and accommodation for female teachers from remote areas.

The same fund will also partially cover the costs of the school for the first two years.

“I overwhelmingly thank The Big Heart Foundation for believing in my dream of a world where girls can choose their own future path. With their support, the Malala Fund can provide education for girls in my hometown, Swat Valley in Pakistan,” said Malala on the occasion.

The school is currently in its second phase of construction and is expected to be completed by April 2018

Once it is completed, the school will open its doors for around 350 girls who will be studying in 11 classrooms. This only goes to show how committed Malala is to the cause of education in the country, especially that of female education. The least people can do is appreciate her efforts.
