Malala added to Children's Museum exhibit

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is not only a fun place for the family, it also is educational.

In 2007, the museum opened The Power of Children®: Making A Difference, which explores the issues of intolerance, fear, and prejudice as experienced by children. Next year, the museum will add Malala Yousafzai as the fourth child in The Power of Children exhibit. This will be the ONLY permanent exhibit featuring Malala Yousafzai in the world!

From the museum:

“Malala is a Pakistani activist for female education. She 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 her life, the challenges she faced as she attempted to get an education and the positive impact she has had around the world. We will recreate her home in the Swat Valley and present information about her life—showing how she used the family computer to express her message. The exhibit will feature her legacy and also showcase other girls who stood up for the right to attend school.”

Malala joins Anne Frank, Ruby Bridges and Indiana’s own Ryan White in the exhibit. For more, click here:
