Our Founder

Kailash Satyarthi
Mr. Kailash Satyarthi is one of the tallest leaders and the loudest voice in the global fight against exploitation of children. Not caring much about the life-threatening attacks that he has survived, Mr Satyarthi has personally rescued tens of thousands of children from the scourge of slavery. His fearlessness and unrelenting policy advocacy efforts towards elimination of violence against children have resulted in path-breaking legislations globally.
He left a lucrative career as an electrical engineer and started Bachpan Bachao Andolan (Save the Childhood Movement) to rescue children and their families from the shackles of slavery, paving the way for their reintegration into mainstream society with the help of state actors under India’s legal policy framework. Through his sustained policy advocacy efforts in India, Mr. Satyarthi played a pivotal role in mobilising support and ensuring the passage of the Child Labour Act in 1986, followed by its amendment in 2016. Under the aegis of Mr. Satyarthi, Bachpan Bachao Andolan has rescued over 90,000 children from the scourge of bondage, trafficking and exploitative labour over the last four decades.
