Hello Everyone:
Kailash Satyarthi. 60 from India and Malala Yousafzai, 17 from Pakistan have won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize ‘for their struggle against oppression of young people and children’, says Nobel committee chairman Thorbjoern Jagland.  He says Satyarthi is honoured for his ‘personal courage’ in battling child exploitation and despite her youth, Malala has achieved much for teenage education in Pakistan and abroad.
In India, Mr. Satyarthi, a former engineer, has long been associated with the struggle to free bonded laborers, some born into their condition and others lured into servitude. For decades, he has sought to rid India of child slavery and has liberated more than75,000 bonded and child laborers in the country.
Please Note:
Mr. Satyarthia and Ms.Yousafzai are both highly deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize.  Please note much of the attention is on Malala who is better known world-wide and because she is the youngest person (teenager) to have ever been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
In the video below you will find Malala’s address to the United Nations Youth Assembly in 2013 and a photo of her book, I Am Malala which was released October 2013.

“Malala has already fought for several years for the right of girls to education and has shown by example that children and young people, too, can contribute to improving their own situations,”   Mr. Jagland said. “This she has done under the most dangerous circumstances. Through her heroic struggle, she has become a leading spokesperson for girls’ rights to education.”

In many ways, Malala’s story has come to symbolize the trauma of modern Pakistan, as the nuclear-armed nation has struggled to reconcile the opposing forces of violent Islamism and those who envision a progressive, forward-facing future for their country.
