“A child, a teacher, a book and a pen can change the world.” The young Pakistani Malala Yousafzai was 15 when she was hit in the head by a bullet after her efforts in the cause of human rights and education for girls had come to the attention of the Taliban. Miraculously, Malala survived the attack, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 and as one of the founders of the Malala Fund is now a global activist for women‘s education.
