Malala Yousafzai Calls for Universal Education Pledge at UN
Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai addressed the opening of the United Nations General Assembly on Friday, September 25. Speaking from above the floor of the assembly, Yousafzai told world leaders to “look up, because the future generation is raising their voice.”
“Promise us that you will keep your commitments and invest in our future. Promise that every child will have the right to safe, free and quality primary and secondary education,” she said.

Pakistan’s Malala Yousafzai, who won the Nobel Peace Prize this year with Indian children’s rights activist Kailash Satyarthi, said the United Nations’ goals from next year should focus on education.
“We must be determined that our dream of quality education for all will also come true,” Yousafzai said today in the text of a speech delivered in Norway as she accepted the prize. Leaders gathering in 2015 to decide on the next set of sustainable development goals “must seize this opportunity to guarantee a free, quality primary and secondary education for every child.”
Yousafzai, 17, was shot in the head by the Taliban in 2012 in retaliation for her campaign for girls to be given equal rights to schooling, defying threats from militants in her hometown of Mingora. She became the first teenager to win the prize, announced in Oslo in October.
