Adults Helping Kids

Friday, October 2, 2015


Three years ago, Malala Yousafzai was targeted for her outspoken support of girls’ education. But not even a gun could silence her. In fact, it made her voice ring louder. Since her brush with death, Malala has made it her life’s purpose to advocate for the equal rights of all children and was recently the subject of the documentary He Named Me Malala, by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Davis Guggenheim.

Free The Children is proud to have welcomed Malala in Kenya on a ME to WE Trip where she spent several days speaking to girls about their passion for education at Kisaruni All Girls Secondary School. For many young girls, accessing education is about having the opportunity to reach their full potential as leaders and making a meaningful difference in the world.

Marcella Sang, a Kisaruni graduate and aspiring journalist, shares Malala’s belief in the power of education: “This school has changed my life completely. I have gained leadership skills and I have excelled in academics. When I started Kisaruni, I was shy and not able to address people in public. That’s changed—I have a voice now.”

Join us in celebrating the power of education and help support Free The Children’s education program overseas.
