In This Soup Together – How Some Contribute in the World

Child laborers

The Nobel Peace Prize recipients:

When she stepped out of her house to board a school bus, Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by Pakistani Taliban in 2012. She’s been an activist for girls’ educations worldwide ever since she survived, and at great risk to herself.

Mr Kailash Satyarthi, a 60-year old, has been campaigning his entire adult life for child rights and desparately trying to put an end to human trafficking and child labor, and follows in the tradition of Mahatma Gandhi.

“It’s a great honour for all the Indians, it’s an honour for all those children who have been still living in slavery despite of all the advancement in technology, market and economy. And I dedicate this award to all those children in the world.”

A Pakistani youth and an Indian senior citizen both share a common struggle for education and against extremism.

They’re in this soup together – “The World.”

Kailash is seen filming young laborers in India for a documentary about the subject he did back in the 70s.  It’s tragic that child labor has grown since then, and that human trafficking, slavery, and an extremist movement towards hindering girls from receiving an education continues to be a theme as well.
