Laureates and Leaders for Children
Recognising that change could be brought to the lives of children around the world if visionaries from various fields work together, Mr. Kailash Satyarthi envisioned a collective of Nobel Laureates and world leaders who would work together to ensure freedom and dignity for every child in the world. To bring this vision to fruition, the Laureates and Leaders for Children platform was launched in 2016.
The first Laureates and Leaders Summit for Children was held in 2016 in New Delhi where a charter for children, ‘The Will for Children’, emerged. The second Summit was held in Jordan in 2018 and ended with a global call to action demanding urgent action for protection and promotion of rights of children.
