Malala receives Nobel Peace Prize
World conscience could find no better expression than through Malala Yousafzai, Norwegian Nobel Committee Chairman Thorbjørn Jagland told the award ceremony in Oslo.
In her speech, Malala said: "I am grateful for the letters and cards that I still receive from all around the world. Reading your kind and encouraging words strengthens and inspires me."
She said: "This award is not just for me. It is for those forgotten children who want education. It is for those frightened children who want peace. It is for those voiceless children who want change."
She dedicated the Nobel Prize money to the Malala Fund, which is promoting girls’ education. She also spoke of her plans to build schools in the Shangla district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
