Payal Jangid

Payal Jangid stopped her own child marriage when she was 10 years old. Through her advocacy and activism, Payal has been a champion for change and a fearless voice against the exploitation of children.

For her courage and compassionate leadership, she received the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s Goalkeepers Global Goals Award at the age of 17, in 2019.


When Devli asked a group of world leaders at the United Nations’ General Assembly, “if a small girl like me can take a vow to enrol all children in school, then I am sure all of
you dignitaries together can surely eradicate child labour and educate all children of the world.”

Queen Rania of Jordan and Gordon Brown, the British Prime Minister came and hugged Devli. As a result of her act of bravery, 450 million dollars was announced to educate children globally.
