Apple to play major role for Malala fund to improve girls' education
New Delhi : Where Malala Fund is working to educate million of girls across the globe, Apple Inc. is all set to play key role in expanding the mission to provide education opportunities to girls in every nook and corner of the world. Nobel peace laureate Malala Yousafzai has said, referring to strengthening of partnerships between the tech giant and the fund.
During her meet with young developers at the Apple Developer Academy on Friday, Malala said the fund will gain access to new tools to support its mission of free, safe, quality education by tapping into Apple's network of student developers.
"The students in Apple's Developer Academy programme share my passion for improving the world around us, and I am eager to see their innovative ideas to help girls in Brazil and across the globe," Malala said.
Malala also spoke about the new collaboration between its 10 Apple Developer Academies in Brazil and Malala Fund to boost learning facilities for girls.
"My hope is that every girl, from Rio to Riyadh, can be free to choose her own future," she said.
In January this year, Apple entered into a partnership with the Malala Fund to support new programmes in India and Latin America, with the initial aim of extending secondary education opportunities to more than 100,000 girls.
"We share Malala's goal of getting more girls into quality education and are thrilled to be deepening our partnership with Malala Fund by mobilising thousands of Apple Developer Academy students and alumni across Brazil," Apple's CEO Tim Cook said in a statement.
"Apple has been committed to education since day one, and we can't wait to see what our creative student developers come up with to help Malala Fund make a difference for girls around the world," Cook mentioned.
