Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai made her first visit to the Kurdistan Region of Iraq last week, where she called for world leaders to invest in education for children in conflict stricken countries.

“Education cannot be ignored,” she said. "Especially for countries that are going through conflict. Education is a basic human right. Every world leader gives their child education so let’s give it to these children.

“It’s important to speak out for internally displaced girls because I was displaced for three months, so I know how hard it is to get an education when you don’t have a home.”
