More About This Item
عمل إقبال بِالسُّخرة منذ كان في الرّابعة من العمر لقاء دَين على والديه. لكن حين استعادَ حرّيّتَه بعد سنوات طويلة، رفع صوته ضدّ تشغيل الأطفال، إلى أن قُتل. أمّا ملالا فرفعت صوتها في وجه طالبان مدافعة عن أهميّة التعليم للفتيات. حتّى إصابتها برصاصة في رأسها لم تردعها. وقد نالت جائزة نوبل للسلام 2014.
One country: Pakistan. Two children: Iqbal Masih and Malala Yousafzai. Each was unafraid to speak out. He, against inhumane child slavery in the carpet trade. She, for the right of girls to attend school. Both were shot by those who disagreed with them—he in 1995, she in 2012. Iqbal was killed instantly; Malala miraculously survived and continues to speak out around the world. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 for her work.
The stories of these two courageous children whose bravery transcended their youth, beautifully written and illustrated by celebrated author Jeanette Winter, are an inspiration to all.
