Malala Fund

A social profit entrepreneur, Farah Mohamed knows how to grab hold of a challenging current issue and ensure action and momentum for results towards a better world. She is currently CEO of the Malala Fund, inspired by Malala Yousafzai, who survived an assassination attempt by the Taliban for going to school and became the youngest person ever to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. She’s also founder of G(irls)20, which galvanizes the world’s greatest resource – girls and women – and cultivates a new generation of leaders through education, entrepreneurship and global experiences. Farah’s international roles include work as co-anchor, The Clinton Global Initiative’s Network on Investing in Girls & Women, and Advisor, Virgin Unite Canada (Richard Branson’s foundation). Of Indian heritage, Farah was born and raised in Uganda until 1972 when Idi Amin ordered the expulsion of Indian Ugandans, giving them 90 days to leave Uganda. Her father, mother and sister sought refuge in Canada. She resides in Toronto.
