“My dream is a simple dream that everybody has. It’s a dream of peace, I want to see all human beings happy. I want to see all girls go to school, I want equality, I want justice. But for that dream, I must struggle, I must work hard and I cannot do it all alone. I need people. We can all achieve our goal if we are together.”

“In this world, everyone thinks that having new phones, new computers, is progress but no. The real progress, the real development is to educate girls. When a country has illiterate, uneducated girls, the country cannot be developed. It cannot move forward and if you want peace in this world, if you want development, if you want any progress, we have to do something and that is education of girls. We have to build schools; we have to take care of their education. Together we must struggle. We must be united.”

“Nobel Peace Prize does not mean that is what she was dreaming for and she has received the peace prize and now everything is done.  No, I am not struggling for Nobel Peace Prize and I am not struggling for achieving awards. I just want every child to be educated. If I get the prize, if I see that the girls are not educated, then I should help all the girls. And for me the most important thing is peace and education. If I get the Nobel Peace Prize it’s an honour for me and I will serve all the human beings and I will help people.”

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights congratulated the Pakistani Human Rights defender Malala Yousafzai and India’s Kailash Satyarthi for winning the Nobel Peace Prize.
