Spotlight on nominee Malala Fund

Nominee Malala Fund

Next in our series of posts about new Charitocracy nominees, we have nominee Malala Fund, nominated by donor SuZQ. They break down barriers preventing more than 130 million girls around the world from going to school. You can find their web site here.

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!

About nominee Malala Fund

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.

Investing in local education activists

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.

Advocating to hold leaders accountable

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.

Amplifying girls’ voices

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.
