“One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.” — Malala Yousafzai
Like people all over the world, we’ve followed with admiration and excitement the ongoing story of Malala Yousafzai, who was just 15 years-old when she was targeted by for assassination by the Taliban for speaking out on girls’ education. Having survived that attempt on her life, Malala has since taken her campaign global, becoming the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate and winning millions of supporters along the way.
Her story was beautifully captured in the award-winning documentary He Named Me Malala, and now, the Students Stand #withMalala campaign—a collaboration between Participant Media and the Malala Fund—is providing free DVD copies of the film (and licensing fees) to teachers and educators who would like to bring Malala’s story into their schools and communities.
And in addition to the film there are supplementary learning resources available for download, including a curriculum guide and discussion guide created by Journeys Into Film, as well as a toolkit to help turn your students into activists.
So, would you like to stand #withMalala? Sign-up for your free DVD right here.
Note: 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.
