Learn more about the World’s Children’s Prize and its educational program empowering children to become changemakers.
Since 2000, nearly 50 million children have participated in the annual WCP Program the world’s largest annual education initiative that educates and empowers children to be changemakers who can stand up for the equal value of all people, the Rights of the Child, democracy and sustainable development. Most of these children live in poor and fragile states and many are finding out for the first time that they have rights and can make their voices heard.
After learning about the work and impact of the Child Rights Heroes, millions of children take part in an annual Global Vote. They organize their own democratic election days in their schools with all that goes with it, from election booths to ballot boxes and election observers. Together the children choose the recipient of the World’s Children’s Prize for the Rights of the Child. So far, the largest number of voting children in one year was 7.1 million.
