She is the youngest Nobel Peace Prize laureate in history, having received it at only 16 years old in 2013. As soon as she could write at 11 years old, she started an anonymous blog expressing her preoccupation about the Taliban’s increasing control of her native Swat valley, where they prevented girls from going to school. Her popular activism brought a death warrant against her that ended in an attempt on her life.  She was severely wounded but miraculously survived only to return to activism with increased determination. 

She spoke at the UN headquarters in 2013 and called for worldwide access to education and TIME magazine featured her as one of “The 100 Most Influencial People in the World.” U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon described the global inspiration that Malala symbolized as a brave and gentle advocate of peace who through the simple act of going to school became a global teacher.”

This great man of letters is the first African to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1986. 
During the Nigerian civil war, after appealing for a cease-fire, he was held for almost two years as a political prisoner.  In 1994, he was appointed UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador (for the promotion of African culture, human rights, and freedom of expression). But a month later, he was forced to flee across the border to Benin and into exile. In 1997, the military regime of General Abacha proclaimed his death sentence “in absentia.”

One of the greatest and most influential filmmakers of all times, he was born in Calcutta into a family of Bengali intellectuals.  

Throughout his life, this master of the moving image favored a minimalist approach, though he was certainly capable also of staging large, spectacular scenes if the script demanded it. But he preferred the intimate story to the grand epic, and was a poet of the human condition, the comedy or tragedy of ordinary men and women. In his films, he explored the themes of coming of age, spiritual awakening, feminism, natural catastrophes, and mythology. His work reflected in microcosm the ever-changing manners and mores of India. Miriam Makeba (South Africa)

Miriam Makeba (4 March 1932 – 9 November 2008), nicknamed Mama Africa, was a South African singer and civil rights activist.

For the last 40 years, this grand master of photography has travelled across continents, documenting the footsteps of an ever-changing humanity, and witnessing some of the major events of our recent history - international conflicts, starvation, and exodus.  His brilliant and piercingly dramatic images are among the most iconic of the late 20th century and beyond. In close collaboration with his wife, Lélia Wanick, he produced The Other Americas, Sahel, Workers, Migrations and Genesis. These books are mammoth collections of images that have been viewed by millions around the world.

In 2001, he was appointed Goodwill Ambassador of UNICEF, and in 2012, Sebastiao and Lélia received recognition from UNESCO for their relentless work with Instituto Terra.
