Zonta International condemns the killing of 141 innocent civilians, nearly all children in a public school in Peshawar, Pakistan on Tuesday. “This act was a horrendous attack on children and their human rights. Zonta International joins Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai and calls on all governments to ensure the right of all children to safe access to education,” said Zonta International President Maria Jose Landeira Oestergaard.

Zonta International envisions a world in which every child, girls and boys, has access to education without the threat or fear of violence. Our thoughts are with the children, teachers, parents and families affected by this senseless act of violence in Peshawar.
