The youngest Noble Peace Prize winner, Malala Yousafzai has recently returned to her homeland Pakistan after 5 years and is warmly welcomed by the nation on social media. Malala is expected to meet with the Prime Minister, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, but no details of this meeting have been disclosed until now. However, it seems like she is expected to talk with government officials about her plans of investment for the education of underprivileged girls in her four days tour.

Earlier this year, Malala Fund partnered with Cupertino based tech giant Apple to get 100,000 underprivileged girls into education. At that time, Apple CEO, Tim Cook agreed to provide funding and technological resources to Malala’s charity to fulfill its goal of delivering education to girls in developing countries like Nigeria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, and Pakistan as well. It appears that Malala’s ambition of Pakistan’s visit is to discuss the possibilities by which Malala Fund can partner with Pakistani govt to deliver solutions so that underprivileged girls in Pakistan get their basic right of education. However, this can’t be said with certainty.

Apple being one of the world’s largest tech company can bring a lot of support for Malala’s vision. She is aiming to reach more girls all around the globe to help them learn about science, technology, engineering and math skills in schools as well as through e-learning.

Malala has arrived in Pakistan with officials from her Malala Fund group and further details of the trip have been kept secret “in view of the sensitivity surrounding the visit”.

Meanwhile, Pakistani politicians, celebrities, journalists, and even public have warmly welcomed the visit of the daughter of the nation in Pakistan.

Malala Yousufzai, now aged 20 is a vocal human rights activist and also known for her work in woman empowerment. She was shot in the head by terrorists in her hometown in Swat, for campaigning for girls education in 2012. She was treated for her injuries in the British city of Bringham, and afterward, she completed her schooling there as well.

It must be noted that Malala Fund has been actively funding various developing countries to help underprivileged girls get the right to education.
