OUR FOUNDER

Kailash Satyarthi has been battling relentlessly for the rights of children for over 3 decades. Bachpan Bachao Andolan (Save the Childhood Movement), the grassroots movements founded by him, has liberated more than 87,000 children from exploitation. He is also the founder of the Global March Against Child Labour, the single largest civil society network, consisting of a coalition of NGOs, Teacher´s Unions and Trade Unions active in 103 countries for the world´s most exploited children. Mr. Satyarthi´s efforts led to the adoption of ILO Conventions 138 and 182 on worst forms of child labour in 1999. He is also the Founding President of the Global Campaign for Education, a civil society movement working to end the global education crisis, and GoodWeave International, which was one of the first consumer awareness programmes and the earliest example of modern corporate social responsibility. In 2014, he was jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work for the rights of all children.
