Pakistani teen Child Education campaigners, Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi have been announced the joint winner of  2014 Nobel Peace Award.

nrm_1412942100-477149447While 17 years old Yousafzai is leading the crusade for child right to education, another fellow teen – 16 years old India born Satyarthi is a peace advocate and crusader against child labour.

It would be recalled Malala visited Nigeria in June to add her voice to agitation for the release of over 200 abducted Chibok girls by Boko Haram insurgents. The kidnap occurred in the girls’ school in April, 2014.

She was shot at head and abducted in Pakistan by the Taliban Militia group on her way to school for advocating for girl child education in a muslim populated country. She narrowly regained her freedom from the claws of the militants.

Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi will receive the $1.2 million cash prizes at the official presentation in December this year.

AFRICAN EXAMINER Correspondent who monitored the announcement on BBC saw highly elated students of Malala’s school in Pakistan with the Nobel Peace Award to their schoolmate.
