14-year-old Akanksha lives with her parents and two sisters. All three girls share a love for studying, eating, taking selfies and playing Kho-Kho and Kabaddi (popular Indian sports ). There are no schools in Akanksha’s village so she makes a 10-kilometre journey every day to get to class — catching public transportation for some of it and walking the rest. And that’s on days when her parents can afford to pay her school fees. On days when they can’t, Akanksha must stay home. This week, 🔔 Roll Call 🔔 takes us to Uttar Pradesh, India. Click on the link in bio for a glimpse into Akanksha’s life.

When Marie Claire ( @marieclairekaberamanzi ) was in Congo, war was all she knew. ”My family was part of the constant stream of refugees fleeing the country in search of safety. We wanted to live. So we had to leave.” After emigrating from Congo, Marie Claire became the first in her family to graduate high school. Today she’s studying to become a nurse. In @malala ’s book #WeAreDisplaced, eight refugee girls write about losing their homes and how they’ve overcome challenges. Buy your copy (link in bio ) and support girls around the world. Proceeds from every book sold will benefit girls in the book and Malala Fund’s work for girls’ education.

Unlike countries with millions of out-of-school girls, Brazil 🇧🇷 could see every girl in school relatively soon if leaders invested more in education. Malala Fund’s Gulmakai Champion Sylvia Siqueira Campos ( @sylvia feministanegra ) is fighting for that future. With her organisation @mirimbrasil she’s researching the financial cost to the state when girls drop out to help increase graduation rates of black and indigenous girls. Sylvia also trains parents, teachers and local leaders to speak out for girls’ education. See for yourself how she’s helping girls.

Soccer players Melissa Ortiz ( @melissaortiz5 ) and Isabella Echeverri ( @isabellaecheverri11 ) knew their careers were on the line when they decided to speak out against discrimination on the Colombian women’s national team. They shared on camera how the Colombian Football Federation stopped paying female players' stipends and forced them to buy their own flights to matches. Melissa and Isabella's video went viral, with supporters across the country rallying behind them. And thanks to the pair's efforts, Vice President Marta Lucía Ramírez reached out to discuss how the government could help. “We didn’t want girls in the future to suffer from the same issues that we suffered and to also have to keep their mouths shut.” — Melissa ⚽️

As a girl, Tabata Claudia Amaral de Pontes didn’t imagine a political career for herself. “No one in my family went to high school. I was raised doing embroidery and thought that’s what I would always do — like anyone else around me.” Now 25 years old, Tabata is one of Brazil’s youngest elected officials. She campaigns tirelessly for education reform and works to engage youth in the fight for quality education for all Brazilians. “When one girl occupies a space that is usually not for us, we’re saying to other girls that it might be harder for us, but these places are for us too.” - @tabataamaralsp
#MondayMotivation: "There are many challenges that women are facing but it is important for us to join hands and to stand together for equality, whether they're women in Afghanistan or Pakistan or whether they're women in Mexico or in Canada, in any part of the world." — @malala
