At the age of 15, Malala Yousafzai became an international icon. Since then she has been campaigning tirelessly for the rights of girls to go to school.

A powerful voice, and the youngest Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, aged 17 at that time, 18-year-old Malala has now found a fashionable way to channel the cause of education.

She has created scarves with fashion icon TOMS to benefit her foundation.

These scarves are not ordinary ones.

Not one to shy away for a charitable cause TOMS will donate all profits from the sale of the scarves to the Malala Fund, which helps empower girls through education.
