For a few years, MARATHON DES SABLES had always been at the back of my mind so when i found out a few people i knew had signed up, i had to jump (or run) on the opportunity ! I’m always up for a challenge but completing this one will be a lifetime achievement. My ultimate goal is to finish, and do so in good enough shape that i can remember this life altering experience !
Over 130 million girls are missing out on education because they have to work, are married early, lack access to school facilities, or have to care for younger siblings, denying them their fundamental right to education. The Malala Fund is working for 12 years of education for every girl. They partner with organizations that are led by local leaders and focused on improving girls' access to safe, quality, and relevant education.
They amplify girls’ voices. Malala Fund believes adolescent girls should speak for themselves and tell leaders what resources they need to learn and achieve their potential.
12 years of quality education gives girls the skills and confidence they need to thrive at home, at work and in their communities. How can we build a healthier, more prosperous and peaceful future if half the population is not empowered through education and enabled to make informed choices about their own lives ?
