Comments from participating students
“I enjoyed hearing about how to work there and what kind of issues they focus on. I knew about UNICEF, but it was interesting to learn more about them.”

“I have been interested in international cooperation and UNICEF since I was a child, so it was very meaningful for me to hear the real voices of UNICEF. My English is not good enough yet, but it was nice to hear the message delivered slowly and in a tone and speed that was easy to understand."
