The Malala Fund And Toms Made A Scarf To Fund Girls' Education

Some things are better together: babies and dogs. Netflix and blankets. Great social enterprises and fearless activists.

Same goes for the new collaboration between Toms Shoes and Pakistani Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai. The company and the girls' education advocate have partnered on a new item -- a colorful scarf, with sales benefiting the Malala Fund.

“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 PeopleStyle.

Each scarf is printed with a quotation from Yousafzai that reads, "One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world," along with a pattern inspired by traditional Islamic artistry, according to Today.com. The scarves will be available soon in Toms' retail stores and website for $48, and the company estimates that net proceeds will be between $10 to $15 per scarf. 

All of the profits from its sales will go to the Malala Fund, which helps girls around the world receive 12 years of quality education.

Yousafzai has been an advocate for girls' education since age 11, and was 15 years old when Taliban members shot her on her way to school. She made a full recovery in a British hospital and went on to win the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014, making her the youngest ever Nobel laureate.

Blake Mycoskie, Toms founder, told Today that the group is "honored to be able to partner with the Malala Fund and help provide education to girls around the world."
