For Malala Day, Malala's 18th birthday on July 12th, Malala is done with wishes. She wants action.
Post a photo of yourself holding up your favorite book and share why YOU choose #BooksNotBullets - and tell world leaders to fund the real weapon for change, education. We'll use them on Malala Day to show world leaders that the public wants global education to be a top priority.
The shocking truth is that world leaders have the money to fully fund primary AND secondary education around the world - but they are choosing to spend it on other things, like their military budgets.
In fact, if the whole world stopped spending money on the military for just 8 days, we could have the $39 billion still needed to provide 12 years of free, quality education to every child on the planet.
Join us from now until July 12, Malala Day, and share why you choose #BooksNotBullets.
