UNICEF Young Envoys Programme is now open

Posted by Peter MUIR

UniceflogoSince 1996, the UNICEF Young Envoys Programme has been providing a platform for Hong Kong youth to learn about child rights, to go through new challenges, and organize various educational activities to speak up for children.

Those who join the programme can join a field visit to learn about the situation of children and women in developing countries, as well as to witness how UNICEF’s work improves their lives.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. To find out more details click here or visit www.unicef.org.hk/youngenvoys to apply online or follow Programme’s Facebook Page for more details.  Application deadline: 31 Oct 2014
