Chances are that the children educated and empowered through the World’s Children’s Prize Program will grow up into smarter and more compassionate adults who want to join and build a more humane society where everyone is treated equally, where the rights of the child are respected and where people and the environment are healthy.
WCP also provides increased support to very vulnerable girls in Zimbabwe and Mozambique, so that they can create a better life. They include girls who were forced to leave school during the pandemic, wjho are sometimes exposed to child marriage, and have lost their dreams. By receiving education about their rights, help with school fees and building small income-generating businesses, they can reclaim their future.
The World’s Children’s Prize (WCP) Program is the world’s largest annual program educating and empowering children to become humane changemakers who stand up for the equal value of all people, the rights of the child, human rights, democracy, and sustainable development. Patrons of the World’s Children’s Prize include H.M. Queen Silvia of Sweden, Malala Yousafzai, the late Nelson Mandela, Graça Machel, Xanana Gusmão, Desmond Tutu and Sweden’s Prime Minister. Since the year 2000, close to 50 million children have participated in the annual WCP Program. Learn more
