Malala Yousafzai is a fierce advocate for the right to education and shows no signs of slowing down.

For International Day of the Girl, which was yesterday, the Malala Fund announced that they've collaborated with female YouTube content creators who inspire us to learn and challenge what is expected of young girls and women.

The YouTubers have all released videos talking about everything from education, acknowledging the contributions of women to raising a feminist daughter because they "know the value of using their voices to empower others to shine".

The goal is to raise $50,000 through the campaign for the organisation to ensure that no little girl is deprived of education.

The Malala Fund, which was founded by the activist and Nobel laureate, works to "champion every girl’s right to 12 years of free, safe, quality education," the group's website says.

The organisation focuses on working in places where girls frequently don't have access to secondary schooling — and its priority countries include "Afghanistan, Brazil, India, Lebanon, Nigeria, Pakistan and Turkey."
