praised Taiwan for its altruism, commending young Taiwanese for their unselfish concern for others and devotion to volunteering to help those who are less fortunate.

Speaking in a meeting with Taichung Mayor Lin Chia-lung (林佳龍), Satyarthi said he has worked with many young Taiwanese volunteers in the past through his foundation that addresses the special needs of victims of child labor.

His foundation, Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA), or Save the Childhood Movement, is an India-based organization that campaigns for the rights of children. As a result of his work, Satyarthi was selected along with Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai as winners of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize.

Many young Taiwanese he encountered have exhibited enthusiasm and were more than willing to spend a month in India to help him promote children’s rights and education, he told the Taichung mayor.    [FULL  STORY]
