UNICEF is the world’s leading child-focused humanitarian and development agency. We save children’s lives and secure their rights in virtually every country, and we work to ensure that all children can grow up safe, healthy and educated. Representing UNICEF on campus, our group aims to raise funds, awareness and advocacy for children’s issues. If you are interested in making a difference, gaining some valuable experience, and meeting new people then join along. Everyone is welcome!
McGill Students for UNICEF is always welcoming new members. You can send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll add you to our listserv!
You can also meet us during Activities Nights mid-September!

Funny fact, while getting the website up and running I found an old draft saying “We have a goal for our study term of 2013/2014 and that’s to raise $10,000 of funds for UNICEF! We’ve got this beautiful thermometer going and last year we raised $7,177.75!”
