About us

The World’s Children’s Prize program is the world’s largest annual rights and democracy education initiative for children, educating and empowering children as changemakers. Millions of children experience other children’s lives, and the lives of Child Rights Heroes through their stories. Once they are empowered as changemakers they make their voices heard and stand up for human fellowship, the equal value of all people, the rights of the child, democracy and sustainable development, now and in the future.

The majority of the children in the WCP program live in fragile, conflict-ridden states. Children exploited as soldiers, slaves or in the child sex trade discover for the first time that they have rights and are able to make their voices heard.
