Event to feature Nobel Peace Laureate Malala Yousafzai

The Nobel Peace Prize recipient is uniting with Islamic Relief Canada to raise funds for Girls' Education projects around the world. 

As a recipient of many humanitarian awards, the youngest Nobel Peace Laureate in 2014, and an honorary Canadian citizen, the now 20-year-old will be coming to Toronto to promote girls' rights to free, safe and equal access to continuous education.

Malala is intimately familiar with the challenges faced by girls around the world as they try to seek an education. She is the author of I Am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban. At only 16 years of age, she received standing ovations for her moving speech on Girls' Education at the United Nations in 2013. 

Zaid al Rawni, CEO of  Islamic Relief Canada says:
"It is a great honor to host Malala Yousafzai here in Toronto. We, at Islamic Relief Canada, know that at the heart of our work is our unwavering commitment to empowering women and girls. One key component of this is that together we must ensure that every girl is given access and the right to an education. Malala Yousafzai will share her story with Canadians on April 12th and encourage all Canadians to support Girls' Education initiatives around the world. "

Reyhana Patel, Head of Public Relations at Islamic Relief Canada says:
Around 800 people are expected to attend the event which takes places on April 12th at 5:30pm in Toronto, Ontario. Tickets are on sale to the public and can be purchased at: www.islamicrelief.ca/malala
