Pakistan Funds School for Malala Day

Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl who was shot last month for working to support girls' education, is continuing to benefit education in her country even while she recovers in a British hospital. On Friday, Pakistan's president added his signature to a petition asking the government to pay stipends to needy families sending their children to school. The move comes just in time for Malala Day, declared by the government in support of Yousafzai's education campaign.
