"The first grant of the Malala fund will continue this process and provide a safe space for the girls, resources for a positive learning environment and an incentive programme for families. After a needs assessment and final programme design,
the project will be launched and will be operational by spring 2013," the statement further said. The Taliban had said they targeted Malala because she promoted girls' education and "Western thinking".
She escaped death by a matter of inches when she was shot on a school bus in north-western Pakistan on October 9, 2012 as the bullet entered just above her left eye and ran along her jaw, grazing past her brain.
She was flown to the UK for a series of operations and her doctors are delighted at her recovery. They hope that the latest procedures, to put a titanium plate on her damaged skull and to fit a cochlear implant, will be the last surgery she needs.
Neurosurgeon Anwen White said that her "brain is healing very well" and she did not expect any long lasting cognitive problems.
Malala has since been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by three Norwegian MPs, who praised her "commitment so threatening to extremists that they tried to kill her".
