All 2021 Children’s Peace Prize Nominees

Shajid grew up in poverty, his parents have a hard time meeting basic needs. He recognizes that many children in his community drop out of school due to poverty. As a result, Shajid decided that he would spread free education among disadvantaged children. To carry out this initiative, he has been assisted by an office to run his activities and many have helped him financially. Shajid established “Mentors School” where free tuition has been provided to the students. It doesn’t only provide biblical education, but also extra-curricular activities such as  children’s self-development. As a result of this initiative, disadvantaged children will be able to get free education instead of completely dropping out of school.
