Malala Yousafzai To Visit Nigeria In Support of Campaign for Missing Chibok Schoolgirls

Posted in: , , ,

Malala Yousafzai was shot by the Taliban when she was 14 for campaigning for Girls Education in her home country of Pakistan. 

The young activist will visit Nigeria to campaign on behalf of the girls abducted from their school by terror group Boko Haram back in April.

Her visit to Nigeria comes almost 90days since the abduction of the girls and her presence is expected to add to the pressure on the Nigerian government.

Malala also turned 17 today. Happy birthday to her. Watch her talk about the missing schoolgirls below...

Malala has always supported the #BringBackOurGirls social media campaign from the beginning [see here], and had donated funds to help the girls when they return. She is due to arrive today and as well as meeting relatives of the kidnapped girls, she is expected to seek an audience with President Goodluck Jonathan.
