PAKISTANI youth activist Malala Yousafzai is scheduled to visit Trinidad and Tobago at month end at the invitation of Minister of Tertiary Education, and Skills Training Fazal Karim.

Popularly known as Malala, the 17-year-old who was shot on October 9, 2012 by Taliban extremists for her activism on the education of girls in her hometown Mingora in the Swat District of Pakistan’s northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, will be in the country as a guest of University of Trinidad and Tobago (UTT).

In a recent documentary with the BBC’s Panorama, Malala said she does not know why the world is divided into east and west as education is neither eastern or western. “Education is education and it is the right of every human being,” she said.

“The best way to fight terrorism and extremism,” she said “is to educate the next generation.”

A release from UTT said that Malala’s visit will be part of the national university’s tenth anniversary programme which is currently being observed.

Karim is expected to disclose Malala’s itinerary at a press conference today which is also being observed as Malala Day by member countries of the United National Global Education First Initiative.

Malala literally shot to international fame after she was shot in the head for her activism. Her cause has garnered worldwide interest and her foundation, the Malala Fund, is working to ensure that girls in all countries and cultures are able to access quality education.

She has been nominated for the International Children’s Peace Prize and the Nobel Peace Prize. If she wins the latter, she will become the youngest Nobel Laureate.
