To honour the efforts of the famous young social activist, Malala Yousafzai, towards gender equality and female education, Presidians observed ‘World Malala Day’. Malala is the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate, who through her social leadership braved the Taliban and took a stand on equal education for everyone. Yousafzai's efforts have grown into an international movement since 2012, when she was shot by the Taliban for disobeying the edict banning girls from attending school. In honour of her contribution, the United Nations declared, 12th July as ‘World Malala Day’, in 2013.
Education transforms life; it is a basic human right for all and its access should be for everyone irrespective of gender, caste or creed. With the understanding that education is the basic human right and its access should be for all without any discrimination, Presidians drew inspiration from Malala and enacted her life, thoughts and courage. Such efforts sensitize students towards the pressing issues faced by the world today and help them appreciate the contribution such leaders, who irrespective of their age made a difference in this world and worked towards shaping a better society.
