The 2020 Awardees are ten exceptional child rights advocates. Despite hostile environments, threats and a growing racist discourse these extraordinary leaders should function as role-models for all of us. Their strong commitment to prevent children from exploitation and trafficking and to always protect the most vulnerable in our societies transcend beyond their organizations and to all of us, says Jacob Flärdh, Secretary General Child 10.

We are also very proud to present the film ‘Children in the hands of Europe’ that was released with the announcement of the 2020 Awardees.

the theme 2018

without papers but not without rights

This year, Child 10 wants to learn and share the stories of the millions of children who live without papers - but not without rights. We focus on children without documentation, and the children who are at risk, or are living outside the society and social safety net. The best interest of the children should be a primary concern in decisions, regardless of the child's living conditions or legal status, but reality is a different practice.

Children without papers are particularly vulnerable to be exposed to violence, abuse and exploitation.
