Sabaq Foundation presents its heartiest greetings to Malala Yousafzai for winning the Nobel peace prize. Arriving in Oslo City Hall, Norway, Malala made history by becoming the world’s youngest ever Nobel peace prize laureate. Born on 12 July 1997, Malala came into limelight when was shot in the head by Taliban in October 2012. Her crime was that she stood up for the girls’ right to go to school. Since then, the 17-year-old teen from Swat has come a long way in her campaign for ‘every child’s right to education’.
Malala received the peace prize alongside the 60 year old Kailash Satyarthi. Kailash is an Indian child rights activist who stood up to raise awareness about eradicating child labor. Along with speaking up for every child’s right to education, Malala also pleaded to the “developed and strong” countries to bringing peace and harmony in the world.
Whilst the audience appreciated Malala with a huge round of applause, the teenaged girl also received tremendous applause in her hometown Swat. The Nobel Prize distribution ceremony was watched on a big screen in Swat by many teachers and children.
The teachers in Swat said; “Malala is an inspiration for the entire youth of Pakistan along with being the pride of seventy million Pakhtuns worldwide.”
Hence, Sabaq Foundation also hopes to follow in the footsteps of our brave educational activist Malala. We are proud to be one of the contributors in fulfilling Malala’s dream of every child’s right to education. We feel that an online video tutorial website such as our can serve as a double edged sword. Not only can it resolve Pakistan’s educational crises, but it can also help bring in the much needed E learning revolution in Pakistan. Our ultimate dream is to provide a free online video tutorial bank to all Pakistani students so that all the children have access to free and quality education no matter what class or background they come from.
