Malala Yousafzai fund 'to boost education'
Shot Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai has described how a fund has been set up in her name to help all children get an education.
....The first grant from the Malala Fund will go to an organisation in the teenager's home region of the Swat Valley in Pakistan and it aims to encourage girls to go to school instead of going straight into work....
Those behind the project said it would help enrol selected girls into schools and give them the support to continue with their studies.
...The Malala Fund has been set up by international organisation Vital Voices, which says it helps give women a voice to promote prosperity and peace in their communities....
Her condition seems to be improving. All best wishes to her!
