Congratulations to the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize Winners

Child rights advocates Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi are recognized for their work in education and child labor reform.

On Friday, the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has risked her life to speak up for equal education opportunities for girls. At 17, Yousafzai is the youngest recipient of the prize ever, and the first from Pakistan. Kailash Satyarthi, of India, has dedicated his life to combating child exploitation, for which he also won this year’s prize. His peaceful protests have drawn attention to child slavery as well as harsh child labor conditions. According to the BBC, the pair of winners already plan to work together to promote the right of education for every child, and to strengthen cultural relations between their two countries, long political foes.

We congratulate these inspirational individuals by sharing some of their wisdom and beliefs.
