UNICEF is a leading humanitarian and development agency which has spent more than 70 years working globally for the rights of every child and for improvement in the lives of children and their families.
One of the crucial aims of the International Team UNICEF Berlin is to foster a dialogue on children’s rights with international Berlin residents, other UNICEF volunteers as well as with local decision makers and institutions. We act as a support for the public relations and political work of UNICEF Germany which also works to increase an awareness of children’s rights in our society. One of the ways we do this is to regularly organise events such as film and discussion nights on child-related issues in Berlin. Furthermore, we offer programmes for international and exchange students per semester that also include workshops and exhibition visits.
In the past 3 years, the main focus of the international team was on working with Kindergartens children, aiming to raise awareness on different topics such as clean drinking water; equality, children’s rights, and racism; emotional awareness; climate change; and cultural diversity, alongside participating in various UNICEF campaigns.
It is important to mention that the international team has also remained active during the Pandemic, overcoming the restrictions by conducting online workshops and activities with Kindergartens.
