Climate conservation activist Greta Thunberg also sent her greeting, while Priyanka commented, “Happy Birthday, Darling.”
Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistan-born activist, came to light after strongly fighting against Taliban for the education rights of girls. To ensure that the fight goes on, she makes sure to spend her birthday with girls who are fighting for their education. To support the cause, she has also set up Malala Fund.
Taking to Twitter, the official handle of Malala Fund shared, “Even as #COVID19 keeps us at home, @malala's work continues. Nearly 130 million girls were out of school before the pandemic — and now research estimates 20 million more will be out of school because of it (sic).”
Every year on her birthday, @malala travels to meet girls fighting for their education.
