The world risks losing a generation of Syrian children if it ignores their plight, Malala Yousafzai – the Pakistani girl who made a miraculous recovery after being shot in the head by the Taliban – told CNN on Tuesday.

“It’s a risk to all of us if we ignore them,” Malala, as she is known to her legions of followers, said.

“People should focus on their bright future, because their bright future means our bright future, and the future of the whole world.”

Malala visited on Tuesday travelled to the Zaatari Refugee Camp in Jordan to meet with the young victims of Syria’s grinding war. She spoke from there with CNN’s Hala Gorani, filling in for Christiane Amanpour.

We can’t give Peace Prize ‘based on polls,’ Nobel head Jagland tells Amanpour

How, and why, does the Nobel Committee decide whom to award the Peace Prize?

It is a question that arises almost every year in early October.

Unlike the science Nobels, which award work on “Higgs Bosons” and “multiscale models for complex chemical systems,” the work that leads to a Peace Prize can be understood by the layman.

This year, the Nobel Committee bypassed Malala Yousafzai, the popular favorite to win, awarding instead the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

“We wanted to give a signal to the world that now we have the possibility to do away with a whole category of weapons of mass destruction,” Thorbjorn Jagland, chairman of the Nobel Committee, told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Tuesday.

When Malala Yousafzai woke from the coma the Taliban put her in, she was aware of only a few things.

“Yes, Malala, you were shot,” she told herself.

She thought back to her dreams – of lying on a stretcher, being in some distant place far from home and school – and realized that they weren’t dreams, but recollections.

“The nurses and doctors, everyone was speaking in English,” she recalls. “I realized that now I am not in Pakistan.”

All Malala Yousafzai wanted was to go to school.

All she wanted was to go to school.

The Taliban told 15-year-old Malala Yousafzai that she could not, threatened her, but still, she went. Because she refused to be intimidated, the Taliban shot her in the head.

Miraculously, Malala Yousafzai survived the assassination attempt. Now, at 16, Malala is a formidable force in the fight to educate girls – still just a girl herself, she is speaking truth to power all over the world to get her message out.

CNN Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour will speak with Malala, in an event broadcast around the world, in front of a live townhall audience in New York.

On stage with them will be Malala’s father and dozens of school children passionate about Malala’s cause; among the students will be one lucky winner of a national essay contest, flown to New York to meet Malala in person.

Be sure to tune in on Sunday, October 13 at 7pm ET, and see why Malala Yousafzai is The Bravest Girl in the World.

(The Bravest Girl in the World will also air during Amanpour's normal Monday timeslot, 2pm ET, 2000 CET.)
