Tens of thousands of children and youth around the world have been trained and empowered as changemakers to become World’s Children’s Prize Child Rights Ambassadors. Most of them are girls. They also train teachers, local leaders, parents and the media on child rights, especially girls’ rights. They stand up for the equal worth and rights of all people, now and in the future
The majority of the WCP Child Rights Ambassadors live in fragile, conflict-ridden states. Children formerly exploited as soldiers, slaves or in the child sex trade are empowered and in turn empower other children.
