Students from all over the country gathered at the U.S. Fund for UNICEF offices and were treated to presentations from UNICEF officers who work in the field, U. S. Fund for UNICEF Senior staff, and program experts who spoke about our volunteer programs, Campus Initiative, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, and the Tap Project. Breakout sessions offered topics such as special event planning, a showing of the Final Inch”a documentary about the efforts to eradicate polio in India, and more.
The students know us well, and truly believe that with their help, the number of preventable deaths of children can be reduced to zero. In fact, they asked to have their picture taken to demonstrate their commitment!
