The World’s Children’s Prize in Cambodia

The World’s Children’s Prize is open to all schools, child groups and to all humanitarian organizations. It is free of charge to participate in the World’s Children’s Prize program for all who join us.

Until today schools, children’s groups and humanitarian organizations in more than 100 countries have joined the World’s Children’s Prize (WCP). The WCP is implemented by schools and engaged teacher’s, focal points, organizations and in some countries in close cooperation with the Ministry of Education. Schools and children’s groups can become Global Friends to the WCP, while humanitarian organizations become Adult Friends. Some countries have a very large number of Global Friend-schools and groups, while others have fewer.

Join today!
Schools, children’s groups and humanitarian organizations can register with the World’s Children’s Prize as Global Friends or Adult Friend-organizations. This gives you the right to take part in the program and to work with the materials, to participate in the Global Vote and to nominate candidates for the Prize. Register as a Global Friend school or group and/or as an Adult Friend organization on our website, or by contacting us through e-mail at
