Child participation is one of KidsRights main values, and of course also during the nomination process of the International Children´s Peace Prize 2018 this is implemented. Besides the 5 members of the expert committee, there are also 2 members of the advisory committee. These two members are KidsRights Youngsters and will help the expert committee by giving their advice.
The second ever winner of the International Children’s Peace Prize was awarded in 2006 to Om Prakash Gurjar. Om Prakash used to be a child slave and was freed from the hands of the man he worked for by an organization called Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA).
