The proud girls who are Child Rights Ambassadors live at a home run by an organisation called Maiti Nepal, in Kathmandu. It exists for girls who have been victims of trafficking, or who are at risk of being trafficked if they are not protected.
At dawn they packed their backpacks full of magazines and homemade posters on girls’ rights and the World’s Children’s Prize. The first part of the journey was by jeep on dusty mountain roads. Next came several hours of hiking. Nothing can stop them. The girls are World’s Children’s Prize Child Rights Ambassadors, and they are here to talk about the most important thing they know: the rights of the child. Above all, they want to talk about how girls’ rights can be strengthened here in Nepal.
