Green Valley Middle School students Siddhi Upadhyaya and Kaitlin Harold spearheaded a campaign by the school’s Honor Society to collect money for Malala’s Education Fund for Girls.
They collected $525 and made a card with 78 Honor Society members’ signatures that they are sending to Malala Yousafzai, co-founder of the Malala Fund. Malala is an education activist. She was born in 1997 and grew up in the Swat Valley in northern Pakistan.
The Malala Fund empowers girls through quality secondary education to achieve their potential and inspire positive change in their communities, according to www.malala.org.
