JUST RIGHT KIDS AWARDS
Children across the world have now begun standing for their rights as well as for those of their peers, especially for the last, the unheard child and their mother Earth. This award recognizes the voices and efforts of children in India. THE JUST RIGHT KIDS AWARDS honors children who are proactively working on climate change, inclusion, the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and children-rights with a special emphasis on the most vulnerable children.
