The money will go to "Aid Fund for Families of Martyrs and Wounded in the (2011) Revolution."  "The sum is small but symbolic," Karman told Yemeni news media.  "This is a duty to the youths who sacrificed for change and to build a Yemen founded on freedom, justice, equality and good governance," Karman said.  She shared prize money of around one million euros with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Leymah Gbowee, both of Liberia, for the 2011 award.
