Taipei, Oct. 11 (CNA) Kailash Satyarthi, a renowned leader in the global movement to end
exploitation against children is seeking to engage Taiwan in his two major initiatives to “globalize compassion,” a move well received by President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文).
Satyarthi met with Tsai on Thursday on his second visit to Taiwan to advocate two growing global movements “Laureates and Leaders for Children” and “100 Million for 100 Million,” both initiated in 2016 after he was awarded the Nobel Peace prize in 2014.
At a press conference Thursday afternoon, Satyarthi said he has spoken about the two projects with Tsai at their meeting earlier that day, and “she is very supportive and positive.”
Laureates and Leaders for Children was launched two years ago in India with the aim to “build a strong moral platform” for Nobel laureates and world leaders to fight for the wellbeing of children, said Satyarthi, who shared the peace prize with Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai. [FULL STORY]
