Award-winning Young Voices campaigner returns to New York

Ashwini and UNSGYoung Voices campaigner Ashwini Angadi from India returns to the UN in New York this week to call on world leaders to make sure that disability is included in the post-2015 development agenda that will replace the Millennium Development Goals. In July, Ashwini was in New York to celebrate Malala Day and receive a ‘Youth Courage Award for Education’ from Gordon Brown, the UN Special Envoy for Education. Ashwini is co-chairing a new Youth Education Crisis Committee set up by Gordon Brown. The Committee will lead the call of young people around the world for a robust and urgent response to the education crisis, starting with the 1 million Syrian refugee children.
