Mr. Satyarthi’s contribution in the right against child slavery and bonded labour for close to four decades has been acknowledged internationally. He is the recipient of several prestigious awards, including Defenders of Democracy Award (2009, US), Alfonso Comin International Award (2008, Spain) and the Medal of the Italian Senate (2007, Italy), the Robert F Kennedy International Human Rights Award (US), the Aachener International Peace Prize (Germany), the Fredric Ebert International Human Rights Award (Germany) etc.
In 2014, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for the “struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education”.
Mr. Satyarthi envisions a world where the youth realises its truest potential as the agent of positive social transformation. With this aim in mind, he launched the 100 Million for 100 Million Campaign in December 2016. It is a global intervention to mobilise 100 million youth for shaping a better future for 100 million children who have been denied their rights and liberties.
