Gender inequality in developing countries is the most common problem and different organizations are playing their role in the respective countries to provide a solution to this problem. Malala Yousufzai has taken a mission to provide girls with quality education in countries like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Turkey, and Nigeria.
The world’s youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner has developed a charity organization Malala Fund to provide education for girls. On Saturday, she met Tim Cook, CEO Apple to discuss her vision. Apple has announced a partnership with Malala Fund to provide education to 100,000 underprivileged girls.
Reported by The Independent, Tim Cook has agreed to offer the funding and resources to the Malala Fund and has also agreed to lend any support to help the charity achieve its goal.
I really wanted us to work together because Apple has expertise: they are expert in tech, they have resources and they have amazing and incredible people. Many of the champions who are supporting [the girls] are using technology and finding new ways to make it easier for girls to have access to education, whether it’s e-learning or getting STEM [science, technology, engineering, and maths] skills. So, I’m just really hopeful that we can reach as many young girls and as many young advocates as possible. Malala Yousafzai
