Nobel laureate Satyarthi's battle against child labour
Issued on: Modified:
The 2014 Nobel Peace Prize was jointly awarded Wednesday to Indian Kailash Satyarthi and Pakistani education activist Malala Yousufzai. Satyarthi is acknowledged as one of the leading figures in the ongoing battle against child labour. In India, an estimated 50 million children have no choice but to work, and are often exploited by criminal networks. As Mandakini Gahlot reports, Satyarthi's NGO claims to have rescued 80,000 children from conditions which are similar to slavery.
