Malala and Kailash

Malala and Kailash shared the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize “for their struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education.” Their portraits by photographer Michael Collopy, a fellow with the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, now grace the walls of Victor B. and Julia Botto Vari Hall, as part of Collopy’s Architects of Peace series.

Blessed are the peacemakers—and how desperately needed. Malala Yousafzai from Pakistan turns 18 this year. At age 15, she was targeted in an attack by Taliban gunmen for advocating on behalf of education for girls. She is Muslim. Kailash Satyarthi from India is Hindu. He has sought to stop the exploitation of children for financial gain. “The single aim of my life is that every child is free to be a child,” he said in his Nobel acceptance speech. Architects of Peace is a project Collopy began years ago, exploring the lives of women and men devoted to making peace. The permanent exhibition in Vari Hall includes Mother Teresa, Bishop Desmond Tutu, and César Chávez.
