NEW YORK/ HONG KONG, 10 October 2014 – “UNICEF is delighted that Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi, two powerful advocates for children’s rights, have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
“The timing of well-deserved honor for two brave and determined champions for children could not be more appropriate: This is 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 in their own lives for the right to an education and the right to be heard and protected.
“The courage of Malala and Kailash is a rallying cry for the cause of children, everywhere.”
