The father of Malala Yousafzai, the 15 year old girl shot by the Taliban for campaigning for girls to have the right to go to school, has been named a UN special adviser on global education by former prime minister Gordon Brown.
The main part of Ziauddin Yousafzai's role will be to help to get every child to school by the end of 2015.
Malala Yousufzai, the 15 year old shot in the head by the Taliban, has been reunited with her friend who was injured in the same attack.
It is the first day of term in Swat Valley Pakistan and the girls in High School have much to be thankful for.
Speaking for the first time since her attack by the Taliban, schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai said she wants every child to be educated.
