behind The World's Children's Prize
Blind child advocate Manuel Rodrigues from Guinea-Bissau has been selected by millions of children to receive The World’s Children’s Prize (WCP), often called the ‘Children’s Nobel Prize’ by the media. Manuel was honoured for his work for differently abled children. Two other child rights activists, 90-year-old Rosi Gollmann from Germany and Molly Melching from the USA and Senegal, were also honoured: Rosi’s work includes rescuing tens of thousands of girls in India from being killed at birth, and Molly has led pioneering initiatives to tackle female genital cutting and child marriage in West Africa. Both received the World’s Children’s Honorary Award.>
