Nominated By UNICEF Afghanistan Country Office

All 2021 Children’s Peace Prize Nominees

Sheela was born to a poor family, visually impaired at birth and without access to healthcare facilities or education. Yet she faced all her challenges and is one of the brightest students in her class. Sheela is advocating for children living with disabilities to have the right to education and enrolment in mainstream schools. She is determined to make it possible for hundreds of children missing out on their right to education due to disability to enroll in schools without any prejudice and challenges.
