Empower a generation of young refugees
With your help, we will build a Vocational Training Centre in Uganda to help thousands of young refugees achieve self-reliance and build a future for themselves and their families. Visit unrefugees.org.au/Skills for more info.
Plastic bags were supposedly outlawed nation wide in 2016, but as you can see instead of filtering the packaging at the shop or home, (or legislating or enforcing further against offenders) rubbish in all its forms is either burnt in the morning on the street or collected by trucks like this. Run by private individuals they travel to small tin-shack compounds tucked away in the corners and back alleys of towns and cities.
WHAT IT STANDS FOR: United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund
• UNICEF was originally founded in 1946 by the UN to meet the emergency needs of children in post-World War II Europe and China. • In 1950, UNICEF's mandate was broadened to address the long-term needs of children and women in developing countries around the globe. • This mission includes:
1) advocating for the protection of children's rights, to help meet their basic needs, and expand their opportunities to reach their full potential.
2) ensuring special protection for the most disadvantaged children — victims of war (i.e., refugees), disasters, extreme poverty, all forms of violence and exploitation, and those with disabilities.
3) promoting the equal rights of women and girls to support their full participation in the development of their communities. .
UNICEF is a human rights and development organization, not a charity. For over 70 years, UNICEF has been fully committed to realizing the rights of every child, everywhere. #childrenfirst#unicef#unicefusa
It's #WorldWednesday , which means time for updates on UNICEF's work around the world. Nepal's most recent flood has left thousands of children at risk of disease. Many children are also out of school and have had to miss classes. UNICEF has been on the ground distributing hygiene kits, food, blankets, and other necessities.

GratitudeBy now many parents have began another school year. With this change comes time lines, car lines, bedtimes, and meal planning. We are all prone to high levels of anxiety and stress when we are thrown into a new routine. It's important to normalize change for kids. Every child is unique. Learn your child's language for stress and signs of anxiety. You can strategically challenge their way of thinking about stress and offer tools to minimize their anxiety. #schooldays#lifecoach#theoverachievingchild#momwise#childrenfirst
Ladies YOU ARE NOT WINNING if the dude you living with isn't providing and taking care of his own. If he can't take care of his, what in your right mind makes you think he's gonna have you and yours. YOU WILL NEVER be able to BUILD anything great with this type of man. Stay on yours....stay woke! #childrenfirst borrowed from #anthonyswordsofwisdomforwomen
