Malala Yousafzai created a scarf in collaboration with TOMS to help more girls to secure their education. The 18-year-old Pakistani wants to extend her advocacy and empower more young ladies through her "Malala Fund."

The fashion brand, on the other hand, is already known for helping charitable causes and working with the activist is such an honor. "I am so proud to be partnering with the Malala Fund, and the entire movement that was inspired by Malala," the for-profit company founder Blake Mycoskie told PeopleStyle.

"This movement is committed to supporting the rights of all girls globally to have access to 12 years of safe and quality education," the 39-year-old entrepreneur added. "All of us at TOMS are honored to be able to partner with the Malala Fund and help provide education to girls around the world."

Of course, the Nobel Prize winner herself is also proud in working with the Playa Del Rey-based corporation. She, too, is excited about her product as it was the first kind for TOMS.

"It's a scarf girls and women can wear all over the world from the U.S. to Pakistan, whether as a fashion accessory or a beautiful headscarf or hijab," Yousafzai told the publication. "Any girl or woman can wear it, however, she wishes, to show her support for girls' education globally."

Furthermore, the youngest laureate appreciated the help of The One for One company for giving 100 percent of the profits from every scarf purchased to her organization, The Express Tribune reported. Meanwhile, Anna Faris, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Octavia Spencer are just one of the few celebrities who showed their support for "Malala Fund" by wearing the special-designed scarf.

"[They are] creating a community and conversation around it," Mycoskie said. To recall, Yousafzai also helped Syrian refugees with her fund in 2015. She, then, plans to expand her helping hand to everyone and provide quality education to every child this year.
