UNICEF was founded in 1946. Where:
Central and Eastern Europe, Commonwealth of Independent States, East Asia and the Pacific, Eastern and Southern Africa, Industrialized countries, Latin America and the Caribbean, Middle East and North Africa, South Asia, West and Central Afirca. Why:
In December 1946, UNICEF was created by the United Nations to provide food, clothing and health care to the people. Statement: The United Nations General Assembly mandated UNICEF to advocate for the children's rights, help meet their basic needs and expand their opportunities to reach their full potential. - After WWII, European children face famine and diseases. - The United Nations General Assembly extends UNICEF's mandate indefinitely. - UNICEF starts a successful global campaign against yaws; a disfiguring disease affecting millions of children. One that can be cured with penicillin. - Movie star Danny Kaye becomes UNICEF's "Ambassador at Large." - His film "Assignment Children", is about UNICEF's work in Asia which is seen more than 100 million people. - The United Nations General Assembly adopts the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, which defines children's rights to protection, education, health care, shelter and good nutrition. - More than a decade of focus on child's health issues, UNICEF expands its interests to address the whole needs of a child. - Which begins a long lasting concern with education but first, starting with support to teacher training and classroom equipment in newly independent countries. - In 1965, UNICEF was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize "for the promotion of brotherhood among nations." - Marked by celebrations around the world, organizations and people reassert their commitment to children's rights. - Each year UNICEF launches a drive to save the lives of millions of children. The 'revolution' is based on four simple low cost techniques: growth monitoring, oral rehydration therapy, breastfeeding and immunization. - UNICEF's study adjustment with a human's face prompts a global debate on protecting children and women from the malign effects of the economic adjustments and reforms taken to reduce national debate in poor countries. - The Convection is adopted by the United Nations General Assembly. - In September 1990 it enters into force. - This becomes the most widely and rapidly accepted human rights treaty in history. - A never done before summit of Heads of State and Government at the United Nations in New York City sets ten-year goal for children's health, nutrition and education. - War's effect on children receives serious attention in the Machel Report: The Impact of Armed Conflict on Children. - A study supported by UNICEF. - The Council's first open debate on the subject reflects the strength of the international concerns over the effects of war on children. - A global movement for children begins mobilizing every citizen of every nation to change the world with children. - This momentum builds on with The Say Yes for Children campaign. - With millions of adults and children around the world pledging their support for critical actions to improve children's lives. - A landmark Special Session of the United Nations General Assembly was a meeting to review the progress since the World Summit for Children in 1990 and energize global commitment to children's right. - This is the first such session devoted exclusively to children and the first to include them as official delegates. - UNICEF's placement on the Political Spectrum would be on the top left hand side. The End! BY: Now, please look on the right side of the bulletin board.
