Interaction with Mr. Kailash Satyarthi- Nobel Peace Laureate

2019-20

On 10  June, 2019 , fourteen students from the  school were privileged to  attend an interactive session with  the Nobel Peace Laureate-2014, Mr. Kailash Satyarthi and his wife Mrs. Sumedha Satyarthi, held at GEMS Millennium school , Sharjah from 1.15 pm to 4 p m .

The interaction was preceded by a showcase of The Price of Free - an award winning documentary detailing Mr. Sathyarthi’s mission and the challenges he faces on a daily basis in his dream to end child slavery once and for all.

The session was conducted by student panellists from the host school, and a few student representatives from the eleven participating schools were given an opportunity   to pose questions directly to Mr. Satyarthi.

Suffice to say, the session was extremely enlightening .We learnt about Mr. Kailash's philanthropic pursuits which began from an early age. The conversation also revolved around  Goodweave International, formerly known as Rugmark, a non profit organization dedicated to ending child labour in the carpet making industry, and the essential necessity of Corporate Moral Responsibility. The noble  initiative  of 100 million for 100 million, a campaign that aims to mobilise a hundred million children and youth for a hundred million underprivileged children around the world, to battle out illegal child labour.

Mr. Kailash Satyarthi’s message resonates to command courage and compassion to transform the world into one where the innocence of childhood is never lost.
