(MALALA FUND/CNN) – Malala Yousafzai, the young schoolgirl from Pakistan who was shot by the Taliban in 2012, is providing support to Syrian refugees along the border between Jordan and Syria.

"Today this is my promise, to myself and to these children who I saw here that I will continue the struggle to speak for them, to speak for their rights and to speak for peace and equality," Malala said.

Video posted to the Malala fund YouTube page purport to show her playing soccer with Syrian refugee children. The video also shows refugees arriving on foot across the border.
