Best known for its extensive efforts to promote children’s rights, UNICEF (United Nation’s Children Fund) is one of the leading humanitarian organizations in the world.
UNICEF was founded in 1946 in order “to work with others to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease and discrimination place in a child’s path.” UNICEF operates under the United Nations Social and Economic Council and works in 190 countries and territories through various programs and partnerships.
Since its establishment, UNICEF has successfully affected change around the world in terms of education and healthcare for children. UNICEF fulfills its mission “to advocate for the protection of children's rights, to help meet their basic needs and to expand their opportunities to reach their full potential” through research, fundraising, and work in the field.
This year, we are proud to support UNICEF through our fundraising efforts at HoMMUNC XXXI. We hope that the money we raise at HoMMUNC will help UNICEF in its on-going projects.
