FREE Field Trips to See He Named Me Malala!

  • Sep 09, 2015


In collaboration with Participant Media and Fox Searchlight, the Malala Fund is offering middle and high school students and teachers in select cities across America free field trips to October screenings of the new documentary, He Named Me Malala.

These complimentary trips can even include transportation to and from the movie theater, along with insurance and other services related to your trip. But funding is first come, first served while funds last, so act fast!

The film, which is rated PG-13, tells the 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 gone on to take her campaign global, becoming the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate and winning millions of supporters along the way.

You can watch the trailer for He Named Me Malala below.

NOTE: Curriculum and discussion guides will be available to all participating teachers to facilitate post-screening lessons back in the classroom.

To register for the field trip, visit Students Stand with Malala.
