UNICEF and Rotary (Aired on October 19, 2012)
Rachel Swanson, Director of Volunteer and Community Partnerships for the U.S. Fund for UNICEF and Ananda Grant, Deputy Director of Office of Strategic Partnerships for UNICEF, discuss the work that this extraordinary global humanitarian relief organization does in over 150 countries. UNICEF’s projects include children’s health care and immunizations, clean water, nutrition and food security, education, emergency relief, and more. The two directors emphasize UNICEF’s longstanding partnership with Rotary International in addressing the same areas of global concern, especially eradicating polio and improving the lives of children. UNICEF shares Rotary’s objective of peace and understanding and the belief that such initiatives in health and education contribute to achieving that objective.
