The organization is led by Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai and by supporting the fund Apple wants also help improve the lives of girls across the globe.

He will also meet with Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, and with Gianni Rometty, the president of Federation Internationale de Football Association, the world soccer body.

"My dream is for every girl to choose her own future", Yousafzai said in a statement. It is just shocking to think that is is happening.

With Apple's support, the Malala Fund will be able to double the number of grants awarded by its Gulmakai Network and extend funding programs to India and Latin America, with a goal of extending secondary education opportunities to more than 100,000 girls. But when it comes to the rest of the world's children, they struggle a bit. We won't ask men to change the world, we're going to do it ourselves. We are going to stand up for ourselves and we are going to raise our voices and we are going to change the world.

The human rights and girl child education activist, who is now taking her lessons at the Oxford University, spoke at length about the causes that she supported and the ongoing MeToo and Time's Up movements that have got women from across the world to come together.

"When we talk about feminism and women's rights, we're actually addressing men".

"First we wanted men to do something for us but that time has gone now".

The fund, which Malala founded with her father in 2013, aims to ensure all girls have access to safe and free education for 12 years.

"We believe that education is a great equalizing force, and we share Malala Fund's commitment to give every girl an opportunity to go to school", Cook said in a press release.

Malala also revealed that Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist has been her favourite, along with the many books on girls and women fighting and finding their ways out when the odds are against them that she likes reading.
