In 2023, millions of children around the world will be taking part in the 20th Global Vote to award prizes to Child Rights Heroes, who are all doing fantastic work to support vulnerable children and their rights. To date, almost 46 million children have voted for their favourite Child Rights Hero.
Cindy Blackstock, Canada, has been nominated for her 30-year struggle for Indigenous children’s equal rights to good schools and health, to be with their families and feel pride in their language and culture.Thích Nu Minh Tú, Vietnam, is being nominated for her almost 40-year long struggle for orphaned and abandoned children, and for children who cannot grow up with their families.
Please note that the prize cannot be awarded based solely on votes from a candidate’s own country. If the children in all the other countries have collectively chosen a different recipient for the World’s Children’s Prize, then this Child Rights Hero will receive the prize.
