Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousufzaiâ€™s next book is a story based on refugees. â€˜We are Displace: True Stories of Refugee Livesâ€™ tells the tales of women who have been displaced, lost their homes and settled elsewhere with their families.
The book is described as â€œwhat it means to lose your home, community and the only physical space that you have ever knownâ€�.
The book will have Malalaâ€™s own experiences, as well as, of those she met in various refugee camps.
The 20-year-old, Nobel Peace prize Laureate claims to show â€˜the humanity behind the statisticsâ€™ n her bookâ€™.
She says, â€œWhat tends to get lost in the current refugee crisis is the humanity behind the statisticsâ€¦ We hear about millions of refugees, hundreds of migrants trapped on a boat or in a truck but itâ€™s only when a truly shocking image appears in the news that people consider whatâ€™s really going on.â€�
This isnâ€™t the first time Malala has written a book. She has written two more books previously: â€˜I Am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Talibanâ€™ and â€˜Malalaâ€™s Magic Pencilâ€™.
The proceeds from the book will go to Malala Fund, her NGO aimed at bringing primary and secondary education to every girl.
The book will release on September 4 and is available for pre-order now.
