KidsRights stands for the welfare and the rights of children around the world. KidsRights thinks of children as change makers and believes in their power to make changes possible. Each year, KidsRights awards the International Children’s Peace Prize to a child that fights courageously and exceptionally for the implementation of children’s rights. With the prize, KidsRights offers a stage to children to talk about themselves and their fight. As patron Desmond Tutu expressed it, they "give a voice to the voiceless."
