Malala Yousafzai was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014, jointly with Kailash Satyarthi. For her struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education.
Malala comes from the Swat Valley in Pakistan. In 2009 the Taliban decreed that all girls’ schools should be closed or there would be consequences. Malala continued to go to school. She started to blog about girls’ right to education, and became known as one who defied the school ban. On 9 October 2012 she was shot by the Taliban, but survived. She has not allowed threats to silence her and is a global voice as she continues to campaign for the right of girls to education. The Malala Fund helps to provide schooling for girls. Her message has been that children’s right to education is the foundation for peace. Aged just 17, Malala is the youngest ever Nobel laureate.
Malala has become the very symbol of girls’ right to education. Political leaders and celebrities have paid tribute to the Pakistani schoolgirl and have endorsed her message that every child is entitled to go to school. The campaign “I am Malala” was launched to promote her cause. On Malala’s 16th birthday, 12 July 2013, she addressed the UN, which responded by naming the day “Malala Day”.
