Girl Scouts don’t just sell cookies. We also fight for rights, like girls’ education. This isn’t a problem in the U.S., but in other countries it is. That’s why our troop is taking action by raising money to help these girls who are less fortunate.
We have chosen to donate to the Malala Fund because it helps girls all over the world who don’t get to have the same education that we get. Malala is a role model for girls. People may remember her heroic story. In 2007, a group of people took control of her valley. Malala and her friends would have to sneak into school. Malala protested, even though she knew the dangers. As she became popular, the group started to target her.
