Today, more than 60 million girls are not in school for reasons including having to work, being married at an early age, and taking care of siblings. In more than 70 countries, violence also hinders girls from getting an education.
The Malala Fund is working to provide learning programs and safe spaces for girls in Pakistan, Nigeria, Kenya, and Sierra Leone, as well as Syrian refugee girls at risk of child marriage in Lebanon and Jordan. This past year, it awarded more than $1 million in grants for Syrian refugees. –
The Malala Fund and donated-clothing program Schoola have partnered to create He Named Me Malala bags, with the aim of providing 12 years of free, quality, and safe schooling to girls being deprived of an education. But they need the help of students across America to do so.
To date, Schoola has received 1,567 filled bags, which together raised more than $103,000 for the Malala Fund. They’ve received over 15 tons of clothes—the equivalent of 30,404 pounds—for the campaign.
Students contribute by stuffing the Malala-branded bags, prepaid postage included, with gently used clothing and mailing them. Schoola sells the donated clothes online and sends the remaining sales proceeds, after shipping and fund-raising costs, to the Malala Fund to support girls’ education worldwide. For every student who donates, his or her school receives 40 percent of the profit from sold clothing items.
