About Worlds Childrens Prize for the Rights of the Child

The World's Children's Prize laureates are individuals or organisations that – over a long period and in difficult circumstances – have done outstanding work for children, in accordance with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The prize money helps thousands of the world’s most disadvantaged children to a better life. Children who have received support include those who have been sex slaves, bonded domestic workers, debt slaves, refugees, and children orphaned by genocide or AIDS. The WCP Children’s Jury annually select three final candidates. Finally, the World’s Children’s Prize for the Rights of the Child is awarded by the millions of voting children participating in the WCP program and the annual Global Vote. The remaining two candidates receive the World’s Children’s Honorary Award.
