WHAT IS UNICEF?
The United Nations Children's Fund began after World War II, supplying nutrition, medicine, immunization and other urgent assistance to starving and ill children in Europe, the Middle East and China. Today, UNICEF works in over 190 countries and territories to save children's lives, to defend their rights, and to help them fulfill their potential, from early childhood through adolescence.
The UNICEF Campus Initiative at the University of Michigan plays a powerful role in UNICEF USA's mission. As one of the 120 active Campus Initiative Clubs around the country, members of our UNICEF chapter strive to educate, advocate and fundraise on behalf of UNICEF, in order to reach zero preventable deaths.
We speak up on behalf of and with children to uphold their rights and work for a better world.
We hold fundraising events to engage our members and raise awareness about UNICEF's mission.
We educate our community on issues affecting children both locally and globally.
