Continuing Malala Yousafzai’s work to educate Pakistani girls is the subject of a presentation on Tuesday.

Malala and the 32 Million Girls is a documentary followed by a discussion in the Lacombe Memorial Centre’s North County Room at 7 p.m. The event is hosted by Azalea Lehndorff, leader of the 100 Classroom Project in Afghanistan. Yousafzai, 14, a dedicated activist for girls’ education in her native Pakistan, survived a recent Taliban assassination attempt and is recovering in an English hospital. The event comes just days after Nov. 10, which a United Nations envoy for education has named Malala Day, encouraging global activities to bring education to girls who don’t have access to it.

The event is sponsored by Tomorrow’s Edge, the student division of Lacombe relief organization A Better World. It’s part of Be the Change, a new discussion series for youth designed to inspire them to act to affect change.
