Lambeth Academy hosts Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi & Dr Rosena Allin-Khan MP

Published on 21 January 2019

Lambeth Academy was thrilled to welcome child rights activist and 2014 Nobel Peace Laureate Kailash Satyarthi to their Year 10 assembly Monday morning.  Mr Satyarthi is in London en route to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland and wanted to make a pitstop to inspire and mobilise young people to join his lifelong fight for the rights of every child.

Joining Mr Satyarthi was Dr Rosena Allin-Khan, MP for Tooting, who spoke to students about her own journey from disadvantaged childhood to medical school and the Houses of Parliament.  There were also representatives of the National Education Union, who organised the event alongside representatives of the 100 Million campaign.  Founded by Mr Satyarthi side by side with young campaigners, 100 Million is a global campaign which aims to mobilise young people all around the world to ensure every child is free, safe, and educated, community by community.

"There is no voice more powerful in the fight for the rights of our children than that of children themselves," stated Mr Satyarthi.  "I am always energised when I meet dynamic young people, who are so enthusiastic to give their time and their very best efforts to help their peers.  I am delighted the students at Lambeth Academy pledged to join the 100 Million campaign today - by doing so, they join millions of young people all around the world who work to ensure the freedom, safety, and right to education of every child in their communities."
