Daniel wants to become a future leader who stands up for children’s rights. He started advocating for children’s rights in primary school, when his teachers were physically punishing children. During the Covid-19 pandemic, Daniel created a network to collect the data of girl child who got pregnant and did not go back to school. He created the local “peace making harmony” team to talk to parents of those children, to forgive them and allow them to go back to school, do their exams and continue with their studies after giving birth. Over 4000 girls were helped to go back to school.
