On October 9, 2012, 15-year-old Malala Yousafzai of Pakistan was shot in the head by the Taliban. It was a failed attempt to silence her - and her leading voice for girls' education and the right of all children to go to school.
The Malala Fund was established for the family and Malala to direct once she is well to work together with supporters of the cause, including the United Nations Foundation and Girl Up.

Thank you Madonna for being brave and happy-that you saved the life of Malala-another girl who will Live to Tell. Namaste, Madge!
I took that picture in LA on 10/10!!! :)
You gave an amazing speech on 10/10/12 at Staples Center. I can't stress enough how much I appreciate all you do for the world that goes unrecognized because critics can't see past you being a woman in power with a clear and open mind. You have stood behind the LGBT community for ever and a day, stood up for basic human rights and stood up for people who are different. Malala has to be so proud to have you and your fans standing behind her and what she believes in. I do realize how lucky I am to live in Los Angeles and I can admit, I don't always appreciate all that I have, but you knocked my upside my head that night and gave me a good reality check. Love to you always.
Malala you are an inspiration to all girl's who can't have a voice. My the Light shine forever on your path as you walk.
this whole story was sad in the beginning, but it appears that something very good is evolving now and i am happy that the malala fund has been created.
This is more proof; man lives all these years on earth and can not come out of the Dark Ages of time.I wish her speedy recovery..This is the type of thinking that burnt Joan Of Arc...France A.D. 1431.
