The 25-year-old met Chief Minister Punjab Parvez Elahi and convinced him to initiate legislation against corporal punishment. 

CM Elahi also promised Malala to fill the gap in STEAM literacy by committing to recruit 25,000 teachers who will teach mathematics and science in schools.

Malala also requested the chief minister to speed up the release of funds to facilitate the Malala Fund’s STEAM partnership with the province.

The girl’s education activist last came to Pakistan in October to meet the flood-affected population in Sindh with a specific focus on children and their loss of education following the catastrophic climate-induced flooding.
