United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund
Whitney M. Young High School's UNICEF Club encourages the school community to take an active part to help end preventable deaths in children. This fundraising page will allow everyone and anyone to support UNICEF's mission to save lives and build futures.
In every part of the world, children are faced with inadequate access to safe water and sanitation services, coupled with poor hygiene practices, which then kills and sickens thousands of children every day, and leads to impoverishment and diminished opportunities for thousands more.
Nearly half the world’s children – especially girls from marginalized populations – are likely to miss out on programmes that can develop these skills in early childhood. UNICEF strives to improve young children’s capacity to develop and learn, and to ensure that educational environments provide the tools they need to flourish. We want to ensure that no child is at a disadvantage and that all girls and boys can realize their fullest potential, both inside and outside the classroom.
"Imagine a world where all children have a chance to fulfil their potential, where every child has a decent place to sleep, enough food, a classroom and the health to learn, grow and thrive.
Imagine a world in which the rights of every child are realized."
With your help, UNICEF can continue to improve the lives and the future of the children of the world. For more information, please visit http://www.unicef.org/
