A 100,000 children – a whole generation– in and around the national parks Gonarezhou in Zimbabwe and Limpopo in Mozambique are being educated through the Peace & Changemaker Generation project, as changemakers who can take a stand against wildlife crime, and for girls’ rights in their communities. The project is a partnership between the World’s Children’s Prize Foundation and Peace Parks Foundation.
2,000 children in Zimbabwe and Mozambique are trained as Peace & Changemaker Generation Ambassadors.
World’s Children’s Prize Foundation runs the World’s Children’s Prize – supported by 72,000 schools in 117 countries – that has, since its launch in 2000, educated and empowered 44 million children as changemakers that can stand up for children’s rights, democracy, and sustainable development. That makes the WCP Program the world’s biggest annual educational initiative for a better world. Close to half a million teachers have been trained on working with these issues. Patrons of the World’s Children’s Prize include Malala Yousafzai, the late Nelson Mandela, Graça Machel, Desmond Tutu, Queen Silvia of Sweden and Sweden’s Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.
