Activists from Burma, India, and Zimbabwe will share this year’s World Children’s Prize for the Rights of the Child.

The Swedish organizers announced Monday the finalists for the prize, which is split into three parts. The focus is on refugee children, child workers, and abused children.

Cynthia Maung fled Burma 18 years ago, and now runs a medical clinic in Thailand that provides free health care for refugee children. Inderjit Khurana has been honored for starting the organization Ruchika which runs schools and nurseries for poor children in India, while Betty Makoni’s Girl Child Network helps Zimbabwean girls escape trafficking, abuse and child labor.

The winners of each prize will be announced on April 16th, and the three finalists will split a prize of 140,000 dollars.
