Indian boy wins world peace prize


Om Prakash you make us proud Indian’s. Your work and motivation are just wonderful and you deserve the prize! Congratulation. Hope some things our leaders will learn from you and from your work to make better India.

A 14-year-old Indian boy has been awarded the International Children’s Peace Prize for leading a campaign against child labour and child slavery.

Om Prakash was forced to work as a farm labourer for three years. After he was rescued, Om set up a network that aims to give all children a birth certificate as a way of helping to protect them from exploitation.

Om was awarded the $100,000 (£53,000) prize organised by a Netherlands-based group at a ceremony in The Hague.

  1. This is inspirational!!

  2. The word “Om” has a special significance in Hindu scriptures. He has lived upto his name.

  3. Interesting to ponder if Om is Ghandi reincarnated. I just got that vibe from the story for some reason.
