Child Marriage Free India
70,000 women and girls, supported by Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi, are leading the Child Marriage Free India campaign. Launched in 10,000 villages from the Himalayas to the Indian Ocean, the campaigns aims to significantly reduce child marriage rates across India over the next three years.
Justice for Africa's Children
Building on the Laureates and Leaders for Children Joint Statement to the Sixth EU-AU Summit, the Justice for Africa’s Children’ report finds massive international and national injustices have contributed to rise in child labourers, children out of school, and child hunger across Africa.
Fighting the rise in child labor
“I am angry to say that 1 out of 5 children in Africa are working as child laborers, whereas in the rest of the world, 1 out of 10 children are working. When we first held this conference, the number of child laborers in Africa and the number now is the same – between 1997 and now. And in the meantime, the wealth of the world has doubled. You cannot blame Africa. I am angry to say this is happening because of a discriminatory world order.”
At the Fifth Global Conference on the Elimination of Child Labor, the Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation US supported a large delegation of child labor survivors and activists, led by Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi.
