For a world where no children die from the preventable causes, we do whatever it takes to make that number ZERO by giving children the essentials for a safe and healthy childhood.

UNICEF CWRU Club will benefit our university in several ways. UNICEF CWRU will first serve as a space to discuss global issues and concerns. As a club, we will brainstorm unique methods to engage other students so that they too can provide aid to the world’s most vulnerable children. Discussing global issues will also leave the members with a better understanding of current events. UNICEF CWRU will cover a wide range of UNICEF’s Program Areas such as child protection, education, water, sanitation and hygiene, which may align with certain areas of study, allowing for a more insightful, understanding life outside of the classroom. UNICEF CWRU will also provide students with an opportunity to gain leadership positions on campus, adding to our student body’s leadership qualities.
