Both the assassination attempt on Malala Yousafzai and the documentary Girl Rising have increased awareness of the power of girls education to change the world. Now, how do we turn this awareness into action? For iEARN, its giving girls opportunities to learn new technologies, connect with peers worldwide, and to take action on global issues.
The Global Education Conference has been a valuable platform and annual event for iEARN girls to share their stories. Follow this link to our blog where we spotlight on some girls who are taking action to change the world through meaningful cross-cultural collaboration.
Good comments related to Malala Yousafzai. I see her as being somewhat related to the work being done on human rights by Aung San Suu Kyi of Myanmar in a different realm. The work of both is valuable to study.
