Malala Speaks as Action Starts in remote town in India
“We realize the importance of light when we see darkness”, said Malala Yousafzai, today while speaking at United Nations in New York. On the same day,12th July, TERRE Policy Centre and Barefoot Power India commissioned a solar charging station, in Kanyashala ( girl’s school ) in tiny town of Rahimatpur. That provided girl students a big reason to come into school in the morning and get light to carry back with them in the evening everyday! It was on-the-ground contribution to what Malala dreams and what UN Secretary General Mr Ban Ki-moon aims to achieve under Global Education First Initiative.
