If First You Don’t Succeed: Canadian PM Announces Malala Yousafzai Visit
In a second attempt for a Malala Yousafzai visit to Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced via the Prime Minister’s own website yesterday that the Pakistani Educational Activist will indeed be arriving in Canada on April 12, 2017.
The 19 year old was shot in the head by the Taliban on her way home from school in her native Swat Valley, Pakistan, for daring to stand up for women’s education in that country and around the world.
Since her miraculous recovery, Ms. Yousafzai has started and grown the Malala Fund, a charity designed to further the interests of education for women and girls globally.
