RIO DE JANEIRO: Apple launched a new collaboration between its 10 Apple Developer Academies in Brazil and Malala Fund to advance education opportunities for girls.
The advocates join Malala Fund’s network of Gulmakai champions and will implement projects across the country designed to empower girls, teachers and policymakers through skills development, school enrollment efforts and education advocacy. The challenge will harness the creativity and ingenuity of Apple Developer Academy students and alumni in Brazil, giving them the opportunity to work with Malala Fund to design and develop apps that enhance education opportunities for girls.
The challenge will also encourage students to find ways to better enable Malala Fund’s network of Gulmakai champions around the world to communicate and share best practices in a secure environment. Malala said in a statement that she hopes that every girl, from Rio to Riyadh, can be free to choose her own future.
