Malala becomes a millionaire now


Her international best-selling book and lecture tours have made Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai and her family millionaires, says a new report.

A firm set up to handle cash said Malala has £2.3million in its coffers.

A company set up to protect the rights to her life story had £2.2 million in the bank by last August and made a pre-tax profit of £1.1 million, The Times said in a report.

Malala, 18, her father, Ziauddin Yousafzai, and her mother, Toor Pekai, are joint shareholders of the company, Salarzai Ltd.

It was also claimed by Sun reporter Stephen Moyes that Malala, who became the world’s youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014, will pay £200,000 in UK tax on her earnings last year.

Her, book, ‘I Am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban’, was published in 2013.

Malala stars in speaking engagements, and has become an advocate for women’s rights, across the world. She has also set up a drive to try and help the 60 million girls in the world who do not have access to education.

Malala’s Fund aims to “raise girls’ voices and ensure every girl has access to 12 years of free, safe, quality primary and secondary education”.
