Apple has launched a collaboration between its ten Apple Developer Academies in Brazil and Malala Fund, the company said in a statement on Monday.

As part of its  expansion into Latin America, Malala Fund, which works to provide safe, quality secondary education and opportunities for girls, has also offered grants to local advocates in Brazil.

The advocates join Malala Fund’s network of Gulmakai champions and will implement projects across the country, says Apple.

In January, Apple became Malala Fund’s first Laureate partner, enabling the organization to double the number of grants awarded by its Gulmakai Network and fund new programs in Latin America and India.
