Malala Calls for Peace and Development in Nigeria, Syria and Somalia


The following are the awesome words of Malala Yousafzai as she declared open a new library in Birmingham, the largest in Europe. She was flown to the central English city for surgery last October after being shot by a gunman as she travelled to school in Pakistan’s northwestern Swat region.

 "Pens and books are the weapons that will defeat terrorism."

 "There is no greater weapon than knowledge and no greater source of knowledge than the written word." 

"We must not forget that 57 million children are out of school."

 "We must speak up for peace and development in Nigeria, Syria and Somalia." 

"We must speak up for the children of Pakistan, India and Afghanistan, who are suffering from terrorism, poverty, child labour and child trafficking." 

"Let us help them through our voice, action and charity." 

 "Let us help them to read books and go to school."

 "And let us not forget that even one book, one pen, one child and one teacher can change the world." .
