Children are changemakers.

"Creating a world in which children's rights are guaranteed and children are enabled to realize their great potential."
That is the mission of KidsRights. KidsRights is convinced that realizing children’s rights is more effective when you work on them together with children.The experience and authority of children themselves can make a difference, a change.

 

 

 

 

Children can make a change!

“Giving a voice to the voiceless.”

Every year KidsRights hands out the International Children's Peace Prize to a child that boldly and exceptionally defends the rights of children. This prize offers a stage for these children to tell their story and battle for children rights. As patron of KidsRights Desmond Tutu says: “giving a voice to the voiceless.”

The winners of the International Children Peace Prize will show the enormous impact children will have with the activities they do, in the battle to make kidsrights better all over the world. By winning the prize these children “changemakers” get a platform to make their voices heard and the opportunity to develop as positive and resilient change makers. They give a face to children’s rights and its icon for all those thousands of children who face the same injustice or problem.

However, there are many more talented children worldwide with promising initiatives. Therefore Kidsrights believes that all children who want to make a difference must be recognized and supported in their incredible effort to improve children's rights. No matter how small these initiatives may appear, with the right support and options, the impact can be limitless.

Mohamad Al Jounde (Winner 2017): "Every action, small or big, can make a change."
