“One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.” – Malala Yousafzai
Imagine not being able to complete secondary school. Imagine not having access to an education that teaches you how to read, write, create, and express yourself. Today more than 130 million girls still can’t go to school. Today – more than ever- their futures are under threat and their dreams on hold. We refuse to live in a world where girls are held back from reaching their full potential. We know that girls can achieve amazing things when given the tools they need to grow. Which is why littleBits is so proud to announce our campaign to support Malala Fund, an organization that is working to provide the 130 million girls out of school access to education.
Malala Fund advocates at the local, national, and global levels to fight the barriers keeping girls out of school. They are committed to investing in girls’ education projects in the most vulnerable communities around the world. Malala Fund wants to see a world where every girl can complete 12 years of safe, quality education and so do we. Which is why littleBits is donating 20% of all proceeds (from each purchases on littleBits.com with the code MALALA20) to Malala Fund.

We are proud to support Malala Fund! We believe that every girl deserves the opportunity to gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence to learn and invent unlimited possibilities for themselves. After all, each child is a budding inventor, and we believe that all children should be empowered through education.
Malala Fund has an amazing philosophy (and we agree with it!): “Adolescent girls should speak for themselves and tell leaders what resources they need to learn and achieve their potential.” This is where littleBits comes in. We’re excited to be a part of the learning process for young women and to support them in their dreams of excelling in STEM/STEAM.
So, how can you support girls’ education? It’s easy! Now’s the perfect time to purchase some Bits or Kits! When you buy any littleBits kit with the code MALALA20, 20% of the purchase will be donated to Malala Fund. Start investing in future engineers today.
