Last month, Seija Toro, the UNICEF Representative in Costa Rica, visited the U.S. Fund in New York to share with us what UNICEF is doing to narrow these incredible disparities so that all children have a fair shot at a healthy and productive life. One particular program—“Growing with Music”— literally has everyone listening. Growing with Music is a music education program supported by UNICEF that seeks to promote early childhood development and improve school readiness and life skills for children.

The 1971 concert pioneered the all-star rock benefit concert model, which has since been widely emulated for various causes worldwide. The benefit raised over $15 million to support UNICEF programs providing lifesaving assistance to children caught in humanitarian emergencies.
Welcome to the debut of what I plan as a weekly post–the Thursday video. The clips I post here may be a direct comment on UNICEF’s work or may simply represent the mission we share with many.
This week’s featured video comes from Frederic Dupoux, a 25 year old Haitian photographer who has been spending much of his time in the past month in the shelter camps of Port-au-Prince. It was filmed on January 31st in the Ste Therese Football Park in Petionville.

Fred writes: “In this camp people organized it in different zones and put one person in charge of their zone to make sure that it is clean and secured. The zone I shot was called “Lakou 12 Janvye.”[Streets of January 12th]. I was amazed by how clean it was and how they had separated the camp in different sectors and assigned people in charge to make sure that it’s always clean.”
More than 200,000 people are living in temporary shelter camps, supplied with basic needs by UNICEF and other international aid organizations. An estimated 40 percent of them are under age 14.
With schools closed and adults occupied with the daily tasks of finding food, water and medical attention for their families, the young, too, are in need of some occupation. Say the boys in this video, “we may be small, but we can rap!” Watching them is like watching a spark of resilience catch fire.
As for the other star, the iconic orange jumpsuited-man – Fred says he’s “Master Guerrier L’Oiseau,” a well known karate master who lost his school in the quake. Many of his students, though, are now his neighbor in Lakou 12 Janvye.
We’re grateful to Fred for the glimpse at life in an emergency … without urgency.
What do Elijah Wood, G. Love, and They Might Be Giants all have in common? Here’s a hint: it’s the same thing that Caryl Stern, David Droga, Joel and Benji Madden, and Chiat/Day have in common. Not only are they all UNICEF Tap Project supporters, they also can all be heard all month long on Tap Project Radio. Featured on Creativity, Tap Project Radio is the brainchild of the Tap Project’s advertising agency in Los Angeles, Chiat/Day. Tap Project Radio provides listeners with a unique music experience as well as Tap Project news and updates, special guest DJs and interviews, and information about UNICEF’s work to address the water crisis facing children.
