The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis will add Malala Yousafzai as the fourth child in The Power of Children: Making a Difference®. This will be the ONLY permanent exhibit featuring Malala Yousafzai in the world!
The Power of Children focuses on the stories of extraordinary children in history and how they inspire children today to fight discrimination and intolerance and make a positive difference in the world. The Malala addition will join the powerful stories of Anne Frank, Ruby Bridges and Ryan White.
A Pakistani activist for female education, Malala became the youngest person ever to be awarded the Nobel Prize. She is known for human rights advocacy, especially the education of women and children in her home of Swat Valley in northwest Pakistan, where the local Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school. Malala used the Power of Education to fight for human rights.
The expanded portion of the exhibit will feature Malala’s life, the challenges she faced as she attempted to get an education and the positive impact she has had around the world. The new exhibit will open to the public on September 18 and is recommended for ages 8+.
