11-year-old Carolyn Malsawmtluangi, from the northeastern Indian state of Mizoram, has been applauded for her efforts to help another young girl escape from a trafficker. She recently received a National Bravery Award for her “exemplary courage”.These highly celebrated awards are given to just 25 children in India each year who are between the ages of six and 18. Recipients receive a medal, certificate, a cash prize, and financial support to help them through their education.In previous years, awards have been given out to children who have stopped robberies, saved lives in stampedes, and even fought off armed intruders.
