Every year, KidsRights awards this prestigious prize to a child who fights courageously for children’s rights. The winner receives the statuette “the Nkosi” and a study and care grant to enable him or her to obtain an education. Furthermore the International Children’s Peace Prize is accompanied by a project fund of € 100.000, which is invested by KidsRights in relevant children’s rights projects.

The prize also offers the winner a global platform to promote their work. The message of Sadat, the winner of 2020, reached 1.2 billion people all over the world! Will you help us find this year’s winner?
