Malala to launch new book on refugees

After her memoirs I Am Malala and a children’s book Malala’s Magic Pencil, education activist Malala
Yousufzai is ready to launch her third title.

Her latest book We are Displaced: My Journey and Stories from Refugee Girls Around the World is due to be released on January 8.

The book, Malala, will shed light on her unique experiences as well as the struggles of a number of other young refugee girls she met on her journey. She talks about being first internally displaced as a child in Pakistan, followed by her struggle not to be able to return home.

“It’s titled We Are Displaced because together we want to help others better understand the refugee crisis and how they can help,” said Malala in an interviewwith Parademagazine.

Not only does Malala share her own experiences, but she also introduces some of the refugees to the statistics we read and hear about every day, the heartbreaking journeys of other young girls like her. Zaynab and Muzoon ‘s stories are two.

Another idea Malala explains in her book is the concept of a homeland. ” I hear girls say they want education so that they can one day reconstruct what conflicts or natural disasters have destroyed it, ” says Malala, emphasizing the importance of a homeland for every refugee.
