Apple has announced today that it will partner with Malala Yousafzai and her nonprofit organisation the Malala Fund to help extend its education funding programmes to India and Latin America.

This partnership with the tech giant will allow the Malala Fund to double the number of grants it distributes through its Gulmakai Network, which supports local educators and activists in developing countries that deal with different threats to girls’ education like poverty, war, and gender discrimination.

“My dream is for every girl to choose her own future,” Yousafzai said in a statement. “I am grateful that Apple knows the value of investing in girls and is joining Malala Fund in the fight to ensure all girls can learn and lead without fear.”

The US company will assist with technology curriculum and will also do some research into policy changes to help girls around the world complete their education.
