All 2022 Children’s Peace Prize Nominees

Mahmudur is fighting against child marriage, as it has an impact on children’s right to education and right to health. For instance, in collaboration with high-ranking government officials, he raises awareness among poor families, and aims to bring the poorest families under financial assistance so girls can stay at school (instead of being married). Ultimately, Mahmudur does his work to prevent child marriage so that girls can fulfil their dreams through education. So far, he has been able to prevent 36 child marriages.
