THINK GIRLS DON’T DESERVE AN EDUCATION?

downloadIn an effort to share information from the overwhelmingly positive response to a partial screening of He Named Me Malala at World View’s Building Bridges: Cultural Respect and Equity in the Classroom, we’re sharing more resources on the film, curriculum and discussion guide from Journeys in Film

Think girls don’t deserve an education?
We didn’t think so.

60 Million girls are out of school worldwide. You can help change that equation.

The Students Stand #withMalala campaign, a collaboration between Participant Media and the Malala Fund, is providing free HE NAMED ME MALALA DVDs and licensing fees to teachers and educators who want to bring Malala’s story into their curriculum. These will be provided on a first come, first serve basis (while supplies last).

Take advantage of the HE NAMED ME MALALA curriculum and discussion guide created by Journeys In Film, as well as the student toolkit to help turn your students into activists. 

Sign up for your FREE DVD here* and join educators and students around the world as they stand #withMalala!

*To qualify for a free DVD and education license, screenings must be for educational purposes and admission may not be charged.  If you have questions, please contact: Malalafieldtrip@participantmedia.com
