Malala, the schoolgirl shot by the Taliban for speaking out in support of education for girls has inspired the launch of a campaign.
The 15-year-old who was shot over a week ago at point blank range in Pakistan is recovering in Birmingham, receiving specialist treatment.
The campaign is called 'Because I am a girl urgent action appeal'.
On November 10, former Prime Minister Gordon Brown and the United Nations Special Envoy for Global Education will meet with Pakistan's Preseident Zardari to deliver a petition calling for urgent action to be taken.
Malala Yousufzai, the 15 year old shot in the head by the Taliban, has been reunited with her friend who was injured in the same attack.
It is the first day of term in Swat Valley Pakistan and the girls in High School have much to be thankful for.
Speaking for the first time since her attack by the Taliban, schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai said she wants every child to be educated.
