Next in our series of posts about Charitocracy nominees, we have Malala Fund, nominated by donor
SuZQ. They break down barriers preventing more than 130 million girls around the world from going to school.
A few words on Charitocracy
Firstly, for newcomers: here's how it works. Donors pool their monthly contributions, as little as $1. The cause with the most votes each month wins the pot. No matter how much or how little you contribute, each donor at Charitocracy gets one vote. This is where charity meets democracy. So please share this post and ask your friends to join us and vote! That's how we spread the word and, as a result, grow the monthly pot. The bigger the pot, the bigger our positive impact on the world!
Malala Fund is working for a world where every girl can learn and lead.
With more than 130 million girls out of school today, here’s how we’re breaking down barriers that hold girls back.
Through our Gulmakai Network, we invest in local educators and advocates — the people who best understand girls in their communities — in regions where the most girls are missing out on secondary school.
We advocate — at local, national and international levels — for resources and policy changes needed to give all girls a secondary education. The girls we serve have high goals for themselves — and we have high expectations for leaders who can help them.
We believe girls should speak for themselves and tell leaders what they need to learn and achieve their potential. We amplify girls’ voices and share their stories through Assembly, our digital publication and newsletter.
So visit Malala Fund's page on Charitocracy to vote for, like, or discuss this cause! And check out their short video explaining what they do and why they do it:
