Marking World Children’s Day, #YAS21 laureates join Angelina Jolie to advance child rights.

“Here’s a truth you may not know: As a young person, your rights have equal status to the rights of an adult… Whoever you are, wherever you live, no matter your race, ethnicity, religion or gender, or if you are rich or poor, your life is of equal value to any adult, or any other young person on the planet. That is not just my opinion. It is set out in a legally-binding international agreement – the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child – signed by 196 countries.”

Reforestation and coral reefs restauration programmes

We have carefully selected the various reforestation programmes we will be working with across five continents. 


In the north-east of Brazil, in the states of Alagoas and Pernambuco, corridors of forest are planted by the Nordesta Association. The aim is to connect the Pedra Talhada Biological Reserve, which is the last refuge for hundreds of species, with other forest areas in the region. These forest corridors allow flora and fauna to breed and boost their gene pool. These corridors also protect water sources and rivers.


In Switzerland, in the Canton of Vaud a ‘living fence’ (hedgerow) will be planted on a farm currently practising monoculture under a project by Almighty Tree. The hedge of indigenous trees, native and perennial shrubs will help promote biodiversity and improve fertility of impoverished soil.


In western Kenya, in the region of Teso North, schoolchildren are being educated to help change attitudes and show the importance of trees for daily life by EMAUA a community-based organisation. Tropical tree saplings are taken into classrooms and pupils learn about the carbon-storing capacity of trees. The saplings are then planted and taken care of within school grounds.


In the Philippines, trees will be planted under Louise Mabulo’s Cacao Project Farmers from the San Fernando region are provided with cacao seedlings as well as resources and training to improve their farming technique. The project aims to ensure better and fair pay for farmers as well as creating a more food-secure community as the cacao tree can be productive for up to 25 years.


In French Polynesia, coral will be planted as part of Titouan Bernicot’s Coral Gardeners programme Coral reefs are suffering from climate change, with rising water temperatures and acidification of the sea. Small fragments of super corals will be ‘planted’ in underwater nurseries on the island of Moorea. These corals are more resistant to heat waves and bleaching. Once they are mature, they will be transferred to damaged coral reefs.

Gitanjali Rao created an open software solution called ‘Kindly’ that spots bullying and blocks any message with offensive language before it is sent.


To prevent bullying in your daily life, you can speak up when you witness someone being bullied or harassed. You can also learn more about ‘Kindly’ and promote it to those you know who tend to use offensive language.

Titouan Bernicot and his programme ‘Coral Gardeners’ restore coral reefs damaged by climate change to protect the oceans’ ecosystem.


To protect climate and oceans in your daily life, you can choose low emission transportation such as walking, biking, taking the train.

Lual Mayen provides refugees with IT skills through his Foundation and is developing a video game called ‘Salaam’ to promote peace and empathy towards refugees.


To support refugees, you can listen to their stories, be kind and learn about the conflicts going on in the world.

Stacy Dina Ahiambo Owino and her group ‘The Restorers’  developed an app called ‘i-Cut’ to protect girls at risk of female genital mutilation by putting them in contact with the nearest rescue centre.


To support girls’ rights, you can raise awareness around you and speak up anytime you witness a girl being abused verbally or physically.

Louise Mabulo trains farmers to grow climate-resilient crops. Through her NGO ‘The Cacao Project’ she provides farmers with sustainable livelihoods in a changing climate.


To protect climate and support farmers, you can buy local seasonal products. You can also buy food directly from the source.

Jose Quisocala created a bank called ‘Banco del Estudiante Bartselena’ to allow children working in the streets to get out of poverty. In return for gathering recyclable waste, children receive funds to buy food and attend school. 


To advance education, you can help another child in their studies.

Sustainable Farming & Climate Resilience


… is the founder of The Cacao Project, an initiative that provides farmers in the Philippines with cacao plant seedlings and teaches them how to responsibly and sustainably produce cacao. The project aids reforestation efforts has helped with the revival of two water sources from increased water retention in soil, has planted 70,000 trees, and trained over 200 farmers. She was recognized as a Young Champion of the Earth 2019 by UNEP and by Forbes in its ‘30 under 30’list.

Bank for children’s education


… founded the ‘Banco del Estudiante Bartselena’, a bank for children and the environment, at the age of 7. With the recyclable waste that his children customers pick, they earn money on their bank accounts in order to pay for their food or school tuition. Jose’s initiative won UNICEF’s International Prize in 2014 and the Children Climate Prize in 2018. To date, 2,500 children aged between 7 and 18 have used this bank to buy food and/or study, and 4,000 more are in the process of being enrolled.
