ISLAMABAD - Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai is all set to receive yet another prestigious international award.

She will receive the 2018 Gleitsman Award from the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard Kennedy School for her global movement to equip girls with 12 years of free, quality, and safe education.

The award will be presented to Malala at a public ceremony at Harvard Kennedy School today (Thursday).

In 2014, Malala became the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of her efforts for children's rights. On October 2012, Malala was shot in the head at point-blank range by Taliban gunmen as she was returning from her school in Swat valley.

Now 21, Malala is a student at Oxford University in England. The Gleitsman Award provides $125,000 for activism that has improved quality of life around the world.
