#AceBreakingNews – NORWAY – October 10 – Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi won the 95th Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for their work promoting education rights for children in a year that has been anything but peaceful.
Malala Yousafazi and Kailash Satyarthi Win 95th Nobel Peace Prize
The Norwegian Nobel Committee cited the two “for their struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education.”
Yousafzai, 17, is from Pakistan and Satyarthi, 60, is from India, facts that bring added significance to the award given the tumultuous history between those two nations.
Yousafzai was famously shot in the head by Taliban gunmen in 2012, but has recovered to advocate around the world for education for girls. Satyarthi, the Nobel committee said, has spent a lifetime “focusing on the grave exploitation of children for financial gain.”
