India’s ‘better off’ children march with world leaders to help those left out

By Nita Bhalla NEW DELHI (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Thousands of children gathered at India’s Presidential Palace on Sunday to launch a global campaign mobilizing better-off children to speak up for their disadvantaged counterparts. The campaign aims to build awareness, primarily through social media, of children’s causes and encourage youth to petition governments and the international community to improve the plight of children. Led by President Pranab Mukherjee and prominent leaders such as Holland’s Princess Laurentien and Nobel laureates from India, Yemen and Tunisia, more than 3,000 children marched at the palace to kick off the “100 Million for 100 Million” campaign.
