Unicef
UNICEF is the driving force that helps build a world
where the rights of every child are realized. We have
the global authority to influence decision-makers, and
the variety of partners at grassroots level to turn the most
innovative ideas into reality.  That makes us unique
among world organizations, and unique among those
working with the young.

We believe that nurturing and caring for children are
the cornerstones of human progress.  UNICEF was
created with this purpose in mind – to work with others
to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence,
disease and discrimination place in a child’s path.  We
believe that we can, together, advance the cause of
humanity.

The U.S. Fund for UNICEF was established in 1947 and
is the oldest of the 37 national committees that support
UNICEF. Since its creation, it has provided more than
$1.3 billion in cash and gifts-in-kind to support UNICEF’s
worldwide programmes, with special emphasis on
immunization, girls’ education, HIV/AIDS, nutrition and
emergency relief.

The annual trademark
“Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF”
campaign is of special interest to children, parents and
educators and provides an opportunity for children in
the U.S. to raise funds to help children around the world
while learning about the challenges they face. For
many youngsters, “Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF” is their first
volunteer experience.

UNICEF has an active troupe of
International (Goodwill)
Ambassadors and Special Representatives -- including
David Beckham, Jackie Chan, Danny Glover, and
Whoopi Goldberg – who play an important role across
the United States and around the world. These
spokespersons reach out to fans and supporters to raise
awareness about UNICEF's lifesaving mission and help
keep children's issues under the public spotlight.

The United Nations  
Association is a not-for-
profit, nonpartisan
organization that
supports the work of the
United Nations and
encourages active civic
participation in the most
important social and
economic issues facing
the world today.  
As a local chapter of the
nation's largest
grassroots foreign policy
organization, the UN
Association of Greater
OKC offers Oklahomans
the opportunity to
connect with issues
confronted by the UN --
from global health and
human rights to the
spread of democracy,
equitable development
and international justice.
UNA-USA's reach extends to millions of
Americans through its Council of
Organizations, a coalition of over 100
non-governmental organizations with
interests in education, religion, labor,
sustainable development, human rights,
health and women's issues that all share
the common goals of making the American
public more knowledgeable about global
issues and the U.N. and strengthening the
U.S. - U.N. relationship.

With the United Nations showing an
ever-increasing interest in working with civil
society and Non-Governmental
Organizations (NGOs), the Council of
Organizations plays a critical role in offering
opportunities for leaders from the NGO
community to develop partnerships with the
United Nations and each other.
