Pakistan’s Malala Yousafzai and India’s Kailash Satyarthi Win Nobel Peace Prize 2014

Both of them were awarded the prize “for their struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education”.


Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani school pupil and known for her activism for rights for women and children. On October 9, 2012, while boarding a school bus she was shot by a gunman. Recovering from that shocking incident, Malala rose to the global platform and her message went out far and wide. You can watch her message given to TED here.

Kailash Satyarthi has been active in the Indian movement against child labour since the 1990s. He is the founder of Bachpan Bachao Andolan and has helped free over 80,000 children from the clutches of slavery and child labour! Additionally, he has also been involved with the Global March Against Child Labour, the UNESCO and has helped enact and adopt many national and international legislations on child labour and education.
Here’s a heartwarming story of how Vishal was brought to Bal Ashram (run by Satyarthi’s Bachpan Bachao Andolan) and ultimately traced back to his parents.
Congratulations to both of them for their amazing dedication and work on this cause.
