When I read the book ‘He Named me Malala’ I was really inspired. It tells the remarkable true story of teenager Malala Yousafzai, who was attacked by Taliban gunmen in Pakistan just for going to school! When I got to the end of the book and saw that a fund had been set up in Malala’s name to bring secondary education to girls living in countries that are too poor to provide it or where education for girls is not valued, I knew this was my chance to help. I decided to organise a screening of the film ‘He Named Me Malala’ as the volunteer element of Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award. This screening will raise money for the fund so I hope that people will come to watch and at the same time help young women around the world to have a future.
I look forward to seeing you there!
From Davis Guggenheim, the director of Waiting for Superman and the Academy Award Winning An Inconvenient Truth comes this highly inspiring and deeply moving documentary about courage, survival, and empowerment. He Named Me Malala tells the remarkable true story of teenager Malala Yousafzai, who was attacked by Taliban gunmen in Pakistan for advocating girls’ education. Rather than be silenced, Malala emerged as a global voice for the education rights of all children, and in 2014, she became the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize recipient.
