World's Children's Prize promotes a more humane world. The program is open for all schools and 57,450 schools with 26.8 million pupils in 102 countries supports it. Every year millions of children learn about the rights of the child, democracy and global friendship through the program. They gain faith in the future and a chance to demand respect for their rights. In the Global Vote, the children decide who receives their prestigious award for their work for the rights of the child. The candidates for the Prize are chosen by a child jury who are experts in the rights of the child through their own experiences. The Prize Laureates become role models for millions of children. The prize money is used to help some of the world's most vulnerable children to a better life. The patrons of the World's Children's Prize include Nelson Mandela, Queen Silvia of Sweden, Aung San Suu Kyi and Graça Machel.
