When we don’t make sure
That tomorrow is secure
For the children of the future
The United Nations has given UNICEF the unique assignment of giving all children what they deserve. A major challenge on which the whole world works on a daily basis. We use a large-scale approach on this: thanks to extensive collaborations and the mandate of the UN, we are able to reach millions of children. All over the world we help children overcome poverty, sickness, violence and discrimination. We are helping the children with permanent improvements and we are doing so in all countries. Sometimes under very hard circumstances. We do not ask ourselves wether we should work there but how we are gonna (keep on) work(ing) there. Because every child deserves good nutrition, education and health care.
And it works!
You and the CPC, the CPC and UNICEF, you and the children
The yield of the CPC 2018 goes to education for children on the run in Syria and its surroundings. Because everyone wants these children to develop themselves and get a chance on a better future, despite the conflict and the often traumatic flight. UNICEF actually provides that by providing education. Education gives these children a chance, but there is some much more. It brings structure into their lives, a sense of safety and a moment of relaxation with their peers. Children on the run often admit that they would love to go back to school. By anticipating in the CPC you can offer them this possibility.
What does UNICEF?
UNICEF provides temporary and safe emergency rooms which can be quickly positioned in places where the children are located. Besides that, UNICEF provides the so-called school-in-a-box, which contains all the learning tools so the children can get education in these emergency rooms. Children are getting proper guidance en will get psychosocial help to process their traumas, when needed. We believe that this way we can give the children a base tot move on. Because education gives hope and a better prospective of the future for children, their family and Syria itself.
