Kailash Satyarthi & Malala win the Nobel Peace Prize

1959335_558579247575935_20564224826283883_nWhile many would be familiar with Malala, Kailash Satyarthi‘s story is still somewhat unknown to many. It’s wonderful to see his work finally receiving attention from around the world with the Nobel Peace Prize award. Unlike Malala, Kailash did not have a best selling book or any fancy campaign to promote awareness on his work which is what makes his award extra special.

The Nobel Prize website attributes their award “for their struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education”. Satyarthi  is the seventh Indian to win the Nobel peace prize and was described as “little known” in India by the Hindustan Times, a leading Indian newspaper.
