Free DVDs of He Named Me Malala for Teachers

We’ve all been inspired by the brave actions of Malala Yousafzai, a teenager from Pakistan, staunch advocate for women and girls’ education, prize-winner, and role model to millions of young people across the globe.

Last year, He Named Me Malala, a documentary chronicling the activist’s journey, was released to great acclaim—and most recently, an Oscar nomination. Now, the Students Stand #withMalala campaign, a collaboration between Participant Media and the Malala Fund, is providing free He Named Me Malala DVDs and licensing fees to teachers and educators who want to bring Malala’s story to the classroom.

The film, by acclaimed director Davis Guggenheim and released by Fox Searchlight, is an intimate portrait of Malala’s journey from Swat Valley, Pakistan — where she was shot for standing up for the right to go to school — to Oslo, Norway, where she became the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize winner.

With the DVDs, teachers can also access the film’s curriculum and discussion guide, created by Journeys In Film, as well as the student toolkit. 

Sign up for your FREE DVD here (hurry; it’s first come, first served!) and join educators and students around the world as they stand #withMalala!
