Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on February 10, 2014

STOCKHOLM, FEB 08 –

Indira RanamagarIndira Ranamagar , a Nepali child rights activist, is among the three candidates nominated for this year’s World Children’s Prize, also known as the Children’s Nobel.

Ranamagar has been nominated for her 20-year struggle for prisoners’ children in Nepal.

“She grew up in extreme poverty and had to fight to be able to go to school. Even as a young girl she knew that she wanted to help other people who had hard lives,” according to the the website of the foundation that presents the award.

The other two candidates in the running are Malala Yousafzai , the teenaged Pakistani education activist attacked by the Taliban and John Wood, a former manager in Microsoft.

Yousafzai has been nominated “for her courageous and dangerous fight for girls’ right to education”, according to the website.

“She started to speak out for girls’ rights at the age of 11, when the Taliban banned girls from going to school in the Swat Valley in Pakistan,” it stated.

“Malala defied the rules and kept going to school. Her life was under threat and at times she had to go into hiding. Finally, at the age of 15 Malala was shot and almost killed by the Taliban on her way home from school. But Malala survived.”

According to Yousafzai’s candidate profile, the Taliban thought they could silence Malala by killing her.

“Instead they gave her an even stronger voice, which can now be heard all over the world,” it stated.

“John Wood has been nominated for the 2014 World’s Children’s Prize for his 15-year fight for children’s right to education,” his candidate profile reads.  Read the rest of this entry »
