    India's Kailash Satyarthi and Pakistanís Malala Yousafzai win 2014 Nobel Peace Prize

    India's Kailash Satyarthi and Pakistan's Malala Yousafzay were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for "showing great personal courage" and their struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education.\

    60-year-old Satyarthi, who runs an NGO in India has been at the forefront against child labour since the 1990s. His organisation ĎBachpan Bachao Andolaní has rescued 0ver 80,000 children from trafficking and slavery. He has also been involved with the ĎGlobal March Against Child Labourí and has been credited for enactment of national, international legislations on child labour and education.

    The committee said Kailash Satyarthi maintained Mahatma Gandhi's tradition and headed various forms of protests and demonstrations, all peaceful, focusing on the grave exploitation of children for financial gain. He has also contributed to the development of important international conventions on children's rights".

    Malala, who was nominated in the peace prize category last year also, had displayed tremendous courage even after the Taliban attack when she resolutely expressed her determination to carry on with her campaign for child rights and girls education especially in a country like Pakistan.

    She has become the youngest Nobel laureate. She 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. This she has done under the most dangerous circumstances.
