UN gives out first “Malala Award”

First recipient of award given in name of Pakistani girl shot by Taliban is a teenager in India.

Pakistan’s Malala Yousafzai, who was shot by the Taliban last year and has since become a global advocate for universal education, is now inspiring other teenagers. So much so, that the UN has launched an award in her name.

The first recipient is another remarkable teenager in India.
