Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai is working with Apple to help get more girls access to education. Apple CEO Tim Cook and Malala just announced a long-term partnership with a goal to get 100,000 girls in school.
The pair met in Beirut, Lebanon, which is one of the initial target countries, along with Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey, and Nigeria. The partnership hopes to expand over time and Malala says her dream is to empower as many girls as possible through education.
"We began to talk and it became so clear that she had such a bold vision,” Cook says. “It really lined up with the boldness of Apple and that the core of it is an overriding belief in equality and that education is the great equalizer. And that has always been at the root of our company and my personal beliefs.”
