Nobel Peace Prize: "a prize to all children without a face"

An appeal to the world for which there are no more children without education, forced to work, to fight a war or to marry, was the message left in Oslo, both awarded the Nobel Peace Prize winner 2014-Kailash Satyarthi and Malala Yousafzai â€" during the delivery ceremony of the awards. Both are activists for the rights of children.

The Indian engineer fights for more than 30 years against child labour. "There is no greater violence than denying dreams to our children," said Kailash Satyarthi, who continued: "that's why I refuse to the temples, mosques, churches and other places of worship do not have space for children's dreams. I refuse to accept the world's poverty when only a week of military expenditure would come to bring all children to classrooms. "

The Pakistani Malala, which, with their 17-year-old is the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner, was known to be shot in the head by Taliban terrorists and became the face of the struggle for the right of girls to education.

"This award is not just for me," explained Malala. The young Laureate continued: "it is for all children without face to education; for all children with fear that want peace; for all children without a voice who want change. I'm here to fight for their rights, to make its voice heard. We should not have feathers. We must act. "

The Nobel Peace Prize is recognition of the path already traveled but also a cheque â€" eight million NOK, about 860 thousand euros â€" to allow laureates to continue the battle.
