Plan Details

"One child, one teacher, one pen and one book can change the world."   

“If the whole world stopped spending money on military for just 8 days, we could have $39 billion needed to provide 12 years of free, quality education to every child on the planet.”   

Very bold lines and bold thoughts, isn’t it? These are the lines said by Malala Yousafzai.   

On July 12, 2013, Malala Yousafzai, a sixteen-year-old Pakistani girl, delivered an impassioned speech at United Nations on the need for gender equality in education. The day, July 12, also her birthday, was declared by the UN as Malala Day.   

She also co-authored a book, “I am Malala”. In 2014, at the age of 17, Malala became the youngest-ever recipient of Nobel Peace prize.  A documentary “He named me Malala”, was shortlisted for Oscars. She called on world leaders in 2015, to invest in “books not bullets”.   

We have brought a 20 – 25 minute assembly plan based on Malala Day. The assembly highlights the great work of Malala. The drama and other activities throw light on Malala’s childhood, her interests, goals and aspirations, the ill treatment by Talibans on women in Pakistan and how she raised her voice against the injustice when schools were forcibly made to shut down. Through the assembly, the fine characteristics of Malala such as truthfulness, patience, dedication, bravery and determination are conveyed to the students.    

This plan can be used by schools of any country. The schools can conduct it for a grade or few grades from Class 1 to 10.   

The plan has a main manual illustrating the flow of the event along with the description of the scripts/ performances/ activities in detail and also includes all the necessary resources for the assembly. Activities involving videos, PPTs are not taken for this assembly as a projector facility may not be available in many school grounds.
