Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown has declared Saturday as 'Malala Day' in his role as UN Special Envoy for Global Education.
The ‘day of action’ coincides with his trip to Pakistan to deliver a petition containing more than one million signatures to President Asif Ali Zardari, urging him to "make education a reality for all Pakistani children, irrespective of gender".
Malala Yousufzai, the 15 year old shot in the head by the Taliban, has been reunited with her friend who was injured in the same attack.
It is the first day of term in Swat Valley Pakistan and the girls in High School have much to be thankful for.
Speaking for the first time since her attack by the Taliban, schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai said she wants every child to be educated.
