Child 10 Summit & Award

Child 10 is an annual summit that gathers and recognizes 10 exceptional individuals and grass root leaders from around the world for their brave and relentless struggle to protect and prevent child abuse, exploitation and violations. 

The selected Child 10 Awardees will receive an unique opportunity to meet, learn and share experiences during a 2 day exclusive summit in Sweden. The mission is to inspire, boost and speed up their impact. The summit closes with the Child 10 Award, a ceremony where invited guests are given the opportunity to celebrate the Awardees and learn more about innovative methods to prevent violations of children’s rights. During the ceremony, the Awardees are also rewarded with a grant.

This year Child 10 Award & Summit are focusing on children without documentation who are living outside the society and safety net. Despite that the best interests of children must be the primary concern in making decisions, no matter living conditions or legal status, the reality shows another practice. Children without papers are particularly vulnerable to be exposed by violence, abuse and exploitation. Right now, Child 10 are searching for brave leaders who support the millions of children worldwide who live without papers -
but not without rights.
