One pen can change the world


Shot in the head by the Taliban last year for speaking in favor of girls’ education in Pakistan, Malala Yousafzai celebrated her 16th birthday by addressing the United Nations Youth Assembly.

She speaks more eloquently than anyone I know about the importance and power of education.

“Let us pick up our books and our pens. They are our most powerful weapons. One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.” http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/jul/12/malala-yousafzai-united-nations-education-speech-text

Malala makes clear why, for more than a dozen years, we support a primary school in Kenya. Education is the key to nearly everything good in the world.

Below is a link to Sema Academy a school rocked a few years ago rocked by election violence that left scores dead in the area but has since recovered.

Take a few minutes to take a look.
