Nobel Peace Prize laureate Kailash Satyarthi said he believes child labor can be eradicated in his lifetime, calling for everyone in the world to "take a stand" against the practice.

Satyarthi, 60, was jointly awarded the prize on Friday with Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teenage education campaigner shot by the Taliban in 2012.

The Indian activist was recognized for decades of doggedly championing children's rights in his home country and worldwide, arguing that poverty should not be an excuse for child labor.
