Ziauddin Yousafzai      

Co-Founder of the Malala Fund

Ziauddin Yousafzai is an educator, human rights campaigner and social activist. He hails from Pakistani’s Swat Valley where, at great personal risk among grave political violence, he peacefully resisted the Taliban’s efforts to shut down schools and kept open his own school. He also inspired his daughter, Malala Yousafzai, to raise her voice to promote the rights of children to an education.

Yousafzai is the co-founder and serves as the Chairman of the Board for the Malala Fund. He also serves as the United Nations Special Advisor on Global Education and also the educational attaché to the Pakistani Consulate in Birmingham, UK.

Yousafzai wrote an autobiography titled "Let Her Fly" which was published in November 2018. Yousafzai currently resides in Birmingham, UK.
