UNICEF Statement on Award of Nobel Prize to Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi


UNICEF congratulates Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi, two powerful child rights advocates, on being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. The award demonstrates the unshakeable conviction that children are a force for change.

This well-deserved honour for two courageous champions for child rights comes in the year the international community celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. This award will be an inspiration to all the millions of unnamed and unknown children around the world who battle silently every day for the right to an education, the right to be heard and protected. The bravery and determination  of Malala and Kailash is a rallying cry for children everywhere.
