One part of Pakistan has already started a successful programme of paying families which send their girls to school regularly. But in Malala’s province the government is dragging its feet. Senior politicians have offered Malala help, and if we act now we can get them to commit to rolling this out nationwide.
Before the media spotlight moves on, let’s raise our voices to demand that the government announces funding for all Pakistani girls who attend school. In days the UN Education Envoy will meet Pakistan’s President Zardari and he says hand delivering 1 million signatures will strengthen his case.
To Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari, PM Raja Pervez Ashraf and KP Province Governor Syed Masood Kausar:
We call on Pakistan to agree to a plan to deliver education for every child through building schools, training teachers and funding families whose daughters regularly attend school. All governments and international organisations must play their part to ensure that the millions of children who are currently out of school, get an education.
Sign now, and let’s help make Malala’s dream come true.
