Prince Harry, Meghan Markle & Malala Yousafzai to discuss COVID-19's impact on girls education
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are teaming up with activist Malala Yousafzai to discuss the limitations that girls face in accessing education amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
To mark the International Day of the Girl, the former royals session with the 23-year-old Oxford graduate will be streamed on the Malala Fund’s YouTube channel and website on 11 October.
They will be “discussing the barriers preventing 130 million girls from going to school and why it's essential that we champion every girl's right to learn.”
On October 2012, 15-year old Malala was shot in the head at point-blank range by Taliban gunmen as she was on her way home in the school bus in Swat valley.
The nobel peace prize laureate co-founded the Malala Fund in 2013 to work for girls right to have an education.
Marker has always supported and raised her voice for women’s rights and gender equality.
