Pakistani Canadian Teen Activist Twins Advocate for Girls' Education at G7 SummitWritten by Chelby Daigle
Maryam and Nivaal Rehman, 16 year old activist vloggers, joined the Malala Fund at the G7 Summit in Whistler, BC.
According to the Malala Fund, "Current spending on education is less than half of what is needed to see every child in school. To begin closing the gap, Malala Fund wants G7 leaders — presidents and prime ministers from the seven wealthiest nations — to pledge a combined $1.3 billion in foreign aid to educating girls for a full 12 years when they meet next week in Canada."
The twins interviewed the CEO of the World Bank, Kristalina Georgina, Canada's Finance Minister, Bill Moreau, and Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, about their committments to funding girls' education.
