On Monday, Malala Yousafzai's father, Ziauddin, announced "The Malala Fund" for girls' education, in an interview with ABC News' Bob Woodruff. Earlier in the day, Malala released her first statement since being shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in October. In the video, which was taped before she underwent a five-hour surgery on Saturday, Malala said she would continue to fight for girls' education. "Today you can see that I'm alive," she said. "It's just because of the prayers of people, and because of these prayers, God has given me this new life, and this is a second life. This is the new life and I want to serve the people."
