The extra $39 billion a year is the estimated cost of extending basic education to 12 years from nine.
The Huffington Post reports, “While aid for basic education had doubled from 2002 to 2009, it has since stagnated and fallen in recent years…Even though many countries have increased their national budget allocations, progress in getting more children to school has stalled”.
“In fact, if the whole world stopped spending money on the military for just 8 days, we could have the $39 billion needed to provide 12 years of free, quality education to every child on the planet”.
“The world must assume greater and it must dream greater”, she stated, saying D.I. objectives for 2015 wrongly exclusively targeted on common main education. She added that children should be provided 12 years of free education.
Malala, who in 2012 survived after being shot in the head for her support of girls’ schools in Pakistan, met in June with World Bank President Jim Yong Kim to discuss the coming package of official Sustainable Development Goals the United Nations plans to release later this year.
Describing children as the “seeds of future progress”, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said Tuesday that education is the “the soil to help them grow into global citizens”.
As a preparation for her upcoming birthday advocacy on Sunday, Malala posted what she’s planning to do on her Instagram and asked her supporters to send their personal messages to the world’s leaders. My life of being a child will come to an end, it’s quite hard.
But she said her approach will be unaffected. I think there’s no limit of age…to speak of all children’s rights. “My father has been doing it as a teacher and I will continue to do it as a woman”, she said. You spoke up for me, prayed for me.
Malala and India’s Kailash Satyarthi were awarded the Nobel prize in 2014 for helping protect children and advance their education.
It is also to be mentioned here that Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was also present in the summit during the speech of Malala Yousafzai. It would make recommendations by September 2016.
The fee, additionally backed by the leaders of Indonesia, Malawi, Chile and the D.I. youngsters’s fund UNICEF, can be chaired by former British prime minister Gordon Brown.
“I am more interested in history, economics, these kind of subjects, so I might go to Oxford”, she said.
