All about Kailash Satyarthi

Kailash Sathyarthi
was born on January 11, 1954. He trained as an electrical engineer before founding the Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA) in 1980. The BBA, unlike child rights organisations that preceded it, adopted a policy of “raid and rescue” in which BBA activists and the police stormed factories employing child workers.
 
Over thirty years of activism, Satyarthi has won numerous awards including the Medal of the Italian Senate in 2007, the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award in 1995, and the Aachener International Peace Award in 1994.

He  has been active in the movement against child labour since the 1990s and has freed over 80,000 children from various forms of servitude and helped in successful rehabilitation through his organization, Bachpan Bachao Andolan.

Satyarthi has argued that child labour perpetuates poverty, unemployment, illiteracy and population growth.

Satyarthi has been involved with the Global March Against Child Labor and its international advocacy body, the International Center on Child Labor and Education (ICCLE) - a global coalition of NGOs, teachers and trades unionists, and also the Global Campaign for Education.

Satyarthi is also credited with establishing Goodweave as the first voluntary labelling, monitoring and certification system of rugs manufactured without the use of child-labour in South Asia.

In the late 1990s, Satyarthi was a lead organiser of the Global March Against Child Labour, aimed at raising consciousness about millions of children abused worldwide in a form of modern slavery. Academics remember him excoriating government officials who claimed at international conferences that the problem did not exist in India.

He also founded RugMark, an international scheme that tags all carpets made in factories certified as child labour-free.

More recently he has launched operations to rescue girls sold into abusive forced marriages and helped turn hundreds of villages into rehabilitation centres to teach trades to abused teenagers.

 

 

He has helped enactment and adoption of national and international legislations, treaties and conventions as well as the constitutional amendment on child labour and education.
