I am Malala: A crusader for girls education worldwide

Experience shows that if you give 100$ to a guy, he will most likely spend most of it to follow his own interests. His family, relatives and respective group of people will follow far behind and are lucky if they benefit of it in one or the other way.

On the contrary, girls and women tend to invest money more thoughtfully, think about how and where to best invest it and are more focussed on having their closed-ones and society benefit from it as well. That’s why in many development projects, it is the women who are specifically addressed.

And that’s also why the story of Malala Yousafzai is not only the story of a simple girl standing in for her rights. It is the story of a girl fighting for her right for an education and in the same time for potentially improving life conditions for all of the people belonging to her circle. I am sure there are many more Malalas in this world who haven’t been heard up to now!

About Miriam

I am a traveller. Not in the fast sense. I am travelling on foot, as a pilgrim. And I love writing and playing music. Since I found back to singing and writing while walking the Way of St. James in Spain, I started mingling the two. Means I am walking with my little guitalele and playing whenever the situation seems right for it :-)
