The International Children's Peace Prize is awarded annually to a child who fights courageously for children's rights. Each year's winner has, in his or her own way, demonstrated tremendous commitment to combating problems that millions of children face.
The winner will receive the statuette 'Nkosi, which shows how a child sets the world in motion, a study grant, and a worldwide platform to promote his or her ideals to the benefit of children's rights. Furthermore, KidsRights will invest a project fund of €100,000 in projects that are closely connected to the winner's area of work, in the country of the winner.
The International Children's Peace Prize is awarded annually to an exceptional child, whose courageous or otherwise remarkable actions have made a difference in improving children’s rights, which helps children worldwide. The motivation behind the prize is to provide a platform to children to express their ideas and personal involvement in children’s rights. KidsRights feels that children should be recognized, awarded and motivated in their fierce efforts to improve their own situation and that of the children in their environment and even the world.
The prize was launched by KidsRights during the 2005 World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates at the Capitol in Rome, chaired by Mikhail Gorbachev. Since then, the prize has been presented every year by a Nobel Peace Laureate.
The winner receives the statuette 'Nkosi', which shows how a child sets the world in motion. The winner also receives a study and care grant and a worldwide platform to promote his or her ideals and causes to the benefit of children's rights. Furthermore, a project fund of €100,000 is invested by KidsRights in projects that are closely connected to the winners' area of work in the country of the winner.
The International Children’s Peace Prize is an initiative of Marc Dullaert, Chairman and Founder of the KidsRights Foundation.
