Davos: Nobel Peace Prize laureate and social activist Malala Yousafzai on Thursday stressed collective responsibility to promote the education of young girls across the globe while addressing a session during the annual World Economic Forum here.

Speaking at the session titled "An Insight, An Idea with Malala Yousafzai", the 20-year-old activist admitted that the fight for female education is not a single person's job. "Not one person will be able to do this. I (alone) can't send all girls to schools. What I can do is send as many girls as possible. I try to reach out to as many girls as possible."

"It is also important to remind everyone that they can all play a role in this struggle. This is a responsibility we should all realise," she said.
