Who is UNICEF?
UNICEF stands for ‘United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund’ and is an important part of the United Nations. The organisation works in the world’s toughest places to help the most disadvantaged children and to protect the rights of every child, everywhere. UNICEF’s aims are to provide safe water and sanitation, child health and nutrition, vaccines against diseases, treatment for mothers and babies and the protection of children from violence – in short, everything a child needs to live a healthy and fulfilled life.
But UNICEF cannot continue the incredible work that it does without adequate resources. So, we are asking the whole school community to make small contributions that will add up to make a big difference. If you pay money to participate in events such as our Murder Mystery game or the ‘Guess the Number of Hershey Kisses in the Jar’ challenge, it will be collected and donated to UNICEF, who will use it to make changes in parts of the world where help is needed.
We sincerely hope that everyone will enjoy themselves at this important and inspirational event – one that will allow us to learn about our rights and celebrate how far we have come, but also to appreciate how much more there is left to do.
