Malala Yousafzai’s charity is getting a huge investment from Apple. Apple’s help will double the number of grants to fund the secondary education for girls in India and Latin America. Apple’s goal is to help more than 100,000 girls. The money will also be used to help the organization scale its “technology, curriculum and research into policy changes.” Apple hasn’t told how much they’re donating, but Cook will join the fund’s leadership council.

The Malala Fund helps girls in struggling countries access “free, safe, and quality education.” Malala gained global attention when she became the youngest Nobel Peace Price winner ever in 2014. She survived a gunshot to the head from the Taliban in 2012 when she spoke about attaining quality education in Pakistan.
