Malala receives highest U.N. honor to promote girls education

After her designation, Guterres, Yousafzai and UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed, conversed with youth representatives from around the world on the theme of girls' education.

"You are a symbol of perhaps the most important thing in the world, education for all", he added.

"I stood here on this stage nearly three and a half years ago.and I told the world that education is the basic human right of every girl", Yousafzai said in her acceptance speech.

Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai has been named as the UN's youngest-ever Messenger of Peace.

In her acceptance speech, the outspoken Malala only reiterated her stance on the rights of education for every girl. "Girls were stopped from going to school". "From this day forward, we are all proud to call you Canadian", Trudeau said. Many also face violence, posing additional barriers for school attendance. And, according to Ziauddin, girls' education is an essential part in achieving world peace. "So speaking out, you can help people", she said.

What binds them all together is that they are leaders who have played iconic roles in world history, said Chris Alexander, the former Conservative immigration minister who oversaw the technical process behind getting Yousafzai citizenship.

Calling Malala an icon of courage and resistance, she said that she epitomizes the courage and resilience of the people of Pakistan who have long defied the odds to overcome the challenges that have confronted the country.

". All I had was a father and a family who said "yes you can speak".

Malala said that the honour she received today from the UN Secretary General who designated her as a UN Messenger of Peace, was also given to Pakistan as well.

Worldwide, approximately 50% of refugee children have access to primary education.

The 19-year-old Yousafzai - known to all and sundry these days simply as "Malala" - was to address MPs and senators shortly in a joint session of Parliament, again marking yet another milestone as the youngest person ever to do so. "He needs to go and visit the refugee camps".

"This shows how little the global community is doing to educate refugee children", said Guterres.

Other Messengers of Peace include Leonardo DiCaprio, chosen for his work on climate change and other environmental issues, and Stevie Wonder, a committed campaigner for the rights of persons with disabilities.
