MONITORING REPORT IBD: Pakistani schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai has been nominated for the World Childrens Prize recently for her crusade for education rights for girls.


“She is a child herself and she stands up for girls rights to education in Pakistan, but also in the world as a whole,” said Liv Kjellberg, a member of the international prize jury.


Malala was nominated last year for the Nobel Peace Prize and won the European Unions Sakharov human rights prize and received the 2013 Ambassador of Conscience Award.


“With this powerful weapon of knowledge and education, we can fight against wars, terrorism, child labor and inequality. The only tools that are needed are a pen and a book to get us on our way to an enlightened future for one and all,” she ever said.
