WHAT WE DO

Our Founder

Nobel Peace Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi has been at the forefront of the global movement to end child slavery and exploitative child labour since 1980. Child labour is a human rights issue that has staggering effects on poverty, illiteracy and humanity. Mr. Satyarthi and the grassroots movement founded by him, Bachpan Bachao Andolan (Save the Childhood Movement), have liberated more than 85,000+ children from exploitation and developed a successful model for their education and rehabilitation.

As a worldwide campaigner, he has been the architect of the single largest civil society network for the most exploited children, the Global March Against Child Labour, which is a worldwide coalition of NGOs, Teachers’ Unions and Trade Unions active in 103 countries. Mr. Satyarthi’s efforts led to the adoption of ILO Convention 182 on worst forms of child labour in 1999.

Parliamentarians Without Borders for Children's Rights

Parliamentarians Without Borders for Children's Rights’ is an active group of members of parliament from different countries, spanning across continents working together to create awareness about children rights and ways to implement those rights into local and international law, fulfilling the parliamentarians' primary obligation as legislators. The Parliamentarians work within the framework of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

While the idea of bringing together Parliamentarians across countries and regions is not new, the notion of “Parliamentarians Without Borders for Children's Rights” has still not caught on, especially on issues of human rights, particularly slavery and child labour. This initiative aims to transform Members of Parliament into global champions of children's rights.
