UN Designates MalalaYousafzai as Messenger of Peace
UN Secretary-General, António Guterres designated Malala Yousafzai, global advocate for girls’ education and the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize laureate, as a United Nations Messenger of Peace with a special focus on girls’ education, at a special ceremony at UN headquarters.


“You have been to the most difficult places, visited several refugee camps. Your foundation has schools in Lebanon, in the Beka’a Valley. You are a symbol of perhaps, the most important thing in the world, ‘education for all’,” the Secretary-General said.

The designation was followed by a conversation between the Secretary-General, Ms. Yousafzai and youth representatives around the world on the theme of girls’ education.

Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed also met with Malala ahead of her designation as a United Nations Messenger of Peace with a special focus on girls’ education.
