About the World’s Children’s Prize

The World's Children's Prize program (WCP) is the world's largest annual education initiative that empowers children to change as changemakers for everyone's equal value, children's rights, democracy, and sustainable development. Since 2000, 45 million children have participated.
   Patrons of the WCP include Malala Yousafzai, the late Nelson Mandela, Graça Machel, Desmond Tutu, Queen Silvia and Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.
   WCP is supported by more than 74,000 schools in 119 countries and by 820+ organizations, as well as education ministries and institutions. Since its inception, half a million teachers have been trained in working with the child's rights and democracy in school.
