A world in crisis

COVID-19 has not just had the obvious impacts on children’s lives –the cascading effect the virus has made on UNICEF’s core programming has the potential to set back progress made in saving children’s lives by decades.

It has never been more crucial to ensure that children continue to receive the resources they need to survive and thrive.

meet the changemakers

Changemakers are not just a part of the UNICEF Changemaker program. They are everywhere and they are all of us. Below are a few highlighted stories of world changers and advocates in our UNICEF family.

Oumou

In Senegal, 18-year-old Oumouis bringing change to her community through film —documenting daily struggles girls face across the country. "We have to liberate what's in our hearts," she tells the young women she meets at the community center, at school, and in the city. “Don’t keep it inside."©UNICEF

Rep. Nita Lowey

In her 32 years in the U.S. Congress, Representative Nita Lowey (D-NY) rose to become the first woman to chair the House Appropriations Committee, leveraging her position to champion funding for UNICEF, as well as increases in funding for international education. Congresswoman Lowey also authored the Reinforcing Education Accountability Development (READ) Act, which was signed into law in 2017, establishing quality basic education in developing countries as a key objective of U.S. foreign policy.

Joyce

An aspiring doctor and poet, this Malawian high schooler left a huge impression on our supporters and Lawrence O’Donnell's viewers. Years ago, it seemed as though Joyce would be forced to give up her dreams when her family could no longer afford her school fees, but thanks to a K.I.N.D. Fund scholarship, she was able to continue her studies. Recently, we received some big news from our UNICEF Malawi colleagues: Joyce has officially been accepted to medical school! It's an incredible achievement, and we couldn't be prouder of her!

Christabel

Nine-year-old Christabel has made getting kids their polio vaccines a personal mission. After a pause of nearly six months due to COVID-19 safety measures, her home country, Ghana, just relaunched its polio immunization campaign, and Christabel didn't want any child to miss out. She got her vaccine but knew some children who hadn't, so she took matters into her own hands. She sought out a vaccination team and told them she'd help them make a house call. Following her lead, the team wended their way through a market and across makeshift bridges and open drains to a house where they discovered —and vaccinated —five children who still hadn't been immunized.
