Child rights activist and Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi plans to launch a major initiative that will enlist support of other Nobel prize winners and world leaders for the cause of neglected and abused children. This initiative ‘The Laureates and Leaders Initiative for Children’ by Satyarthi aims to bring Nobel laureates from all disciplines and not just the Peace Prize winners as well as world leaders together to use their moral authority for children’s rights and fight against child slavery and trafficking.
Not only this, the Nobel laureate is also working an ambitious ‘100 million for 100 million campaign’ that will bring together 100 million youth from across the world to channelise their energy for fighting for the rights of the nearly 100 million children who are left out and are denied basic rights like education and proper healthcare.
This 100 million campaign he plans to launch by end of this year.“I aways believed in globalising compassion. This time I want to engage an entire generation. We should not waste the energy, enthusiasm, eagerness and the idealism of our youth,” Satyarthi told a News Agency.
For all this, Kailash believes in making the best possible use of the energy of youth for the betterment of the 100 million young people who do not have the same opportunities to grow and learn.
