Thank you from Malala

Your signature – with that of two million others – has started to change the world. Pakistan has this week voted for the first time for compulsory free education. 3 million boys and girls will now receive cash stipends to help them go to school. All political parties are now discussing doubling education expenditure from 2% to 4% of national income.

But to keep the pressure on, as Malala’s family want us to, we are now aiming for 2.5 million signatures by Christmas and 3 million by the end of January — Please show the Malala film to your friends.

Tell them that Child + Teacher = Hope∞, and ask them to SIGN ON on to this site NOW.

Thank you,

Gordon Brown
UN Special Envoy for Global Education
