The world has paid tribute today to the 2014 winners of the Nobel Peace Prize – children’s rights and education campaigners Malala Yousfzai and Kailash Satyarthi.
Kailash has battled for more than three decades to free children from slavery and trafficking in India, helping to rescue tens of thousands of boys and girls.
Malala recovered from being shot by the Taliban in Pakistan to become a global figure in the fight for universal education.
You can read about the prize, along with tributes, here. And you can watch videos below of Kailash and Malala talking about their work and the ongoing struggle for children’s rights – incuding the right of every child to go to school and learn.
You can add your voice in support of education and join the growing global movement by signing the #UpForSchool Petition – which calls on world leaders to keep their promise to get every child into school by the end of 2015.
