Labouisse Slide 5: UNICEF work in 190 countries through country programmes and National Committees. UNICEF was created with this purpose in mind – to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path. http://www.stolenchildhood.net/images/congo_children_poor_children.jpg Slide 6: UNICEF promote girls’ education – ensuring that they complete primary education as a minimum – because it benefits all children, both girls and boys. Girls who are educated grow up to become better thinkers, better citizens, and better parents to their own children. http://www.phreb.org/work/Education%20for%20Girls.jpg Slide 7: UNICEF work to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS among young people because it is right to keep them from harm and enable them to protect others. We help children and families affected by HIV/AIDS to live their lives with dignity http://www.msh.org/Data-sheets/images/WMD_MW_FP_HIV_360x272_2.jpg : UNICEF upholds the Convention on the Rights of the Child. They work to assure equality for those who are discriminated against, girls and women in particular. They work for the Millennium Development Goals and for the progress promised in the United Nations Charter. They strive for peace and security. They work to hold everyone accountable to the promises made for children. http://faculty.ed.umuc.edu/~jmatthew/naples/unicef.jpg Trick-or-Treat UNICEF box : Trick-or-Treat UNICEF box The tradition of 'Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF' began in 1950 in the United States, when Philadelphia schoolchildren first went door-to-door at Halloween collecting money in decorated milk cartons to help their global peers. They collected $17 to UNICEF on Halloween to help post-World War II victims. Inspired by their innovative and philanthropic spirit, the campaign came to be known as ‘Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF’. In 1967, President Lyndon Johnson declared Halloween, 31 October, to be ‘UNICEF Day’ in perpetuity. Slide 10: The Trick-or-Treat UNICEF box has become a tradition in North America during the haunting season. And millions of children now participate in Halloween-related fund-raising campaigns in the United States, Canada and Hong Kong, China, among other places. In these campaigns, children go far beyond trick or treating in scary costumes with the familiar orange collection boxes in hand. Slide 11: Children and young people take part in various fun and educational events that help them gain a better understanding of child rights and the challenges facing children around the world – including poverty, killer diseases and armed conflict. They help stage events to raise funds and increase awareness about these issues, and in doing so learn that they can help change the world. http://campusadv.com/green/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/unicef_padberg2.jpg Slide 12: Today, Halloween means more than candy, costumes, ghosts, and goblins. It means vaccines, clean water, and improved nutrition for less fortunate children. It means educating our children about the importance of multi-culturalism and community values. "Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF" is a full-year program that provides youth leadership opportunities even after Halloween. http://fieldnotes.unicefusa.org/totstreet.jpg Slide 13: UNICEF is the driving force that helps build a world where the rights of every child are realized. They have the global authority to influence decision-makers, and the variety of partners at grassroots level to turn the most innovative ideas into reality. That makes it unique among world organizations, and unique among those working with the young. http://www.windofhope.dk/UNICEF4.jpg http://www.unicef.com.au/Portals/0/Media/Small/UNICEF%20Logo%20-%20SMALL.png Slide 14: UNICEF is a part of the Global Movement for Children – a broad coalition dedicated to improving the life of every child. Through this movement, and events such as the United Nations Special Session on Children, encourages young people to speak out and participate in the decisions that affect their lives. http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/41608000/jpg/_41608902_unicef7.jpg Slide 15: UNICEF advocate for measures to give children the best start in life, because proper care at the youngest age forms the strongest foundation for a person’s future. http://www.six.somerset.gov.uk/som_images/5112007141639Unicef-Day-for-Change.jpg http://www.unicef.org/ You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
