All 2021 Children’s Peace Prize Nominees

Ahmad was not allowed to go to school for a certain amount of years because of a Taliban rule. 3 years ago, he started to teach children and advocating for children’s rights to education. He taught a group of 50 academically weak students in his block’s yard. Ahmad founded a literacy centre for mothers and children, as they form the majority of the illiterate population. He has developed a unique and distinctive curriculum which informs students about literacy, natural disaster management and comprehensive sexuality education. He’s currently fundraising for a girls school in the province of Wardak, as most girls there are deprived of their rights to education. Throughout his career, Ahmad has attended and represented children at national and international conferences and negotiated with high-level politicians.
