In early March 2016, HFL supporter Cristina Kessler nominated our own Vhuhwavho Nevhungoni (whom we affectionately call “Woo”) for the 2016 International Children’s Peace Prize.
The International Children’s Peace Prize is awarded annually to a child, anywhere in the world, “who has fought courageously to promote children’s rights”.
The prize was launched by KidsRights during the 2005 Nobel Peace Laureates’ Summit chaired by Mikhail Gorbachev. Since then, the prize has been presented every year by a Nobel Peace Laureate.
This year a record number of 120 nominated children are in contention for the internationally acclaimed prize and our own Wavho is among them.
Cristina tells us that KIDS RIGHTS is celebrating Wavho’s inspiring story on 'KidsRight' website.
The three finalists will be announced on November 15th 2016. “Holding our thumbs” that Woo will be among them. We’ll keep you posted!
