Girls, everywhere, are breaking barriers caused by stereotypes. And they won't stop. We’re helping girls build strength, confidence, and leadership skills, all while they play and have fun. #t20WorldCup#Cricket4Good
All children deserve a future where they can thrive on a safe and healthy planet.
But we are failing them dismally.
It’s time to listen to children, invest in them, and protect their world and their future.
Young people can create a brighter future. But only if they get support to learn, train and find decent work. Last year, I visited a UNICEF-supported programme in Bangladesh, which helps young people get the skills they need to succeed. #ThrowbackThursday#GenUnlimited
Part of the solution is working with governments and broadband companies to establish privacy protections for children and young people. Another part of the solution is that every one of us is alert to help young people with their mental health.
Never before has such an enormous amount of information on individual children — their likes, their location, their friends — been available in one place. This puts children in a vulnerable position, with their privacy and their safety potentially exposed to predators.
Young people need online access, otherwise they miss out on global information and learning, and essential digital skills for today’s workplace. @UNICEF is working with @ITU and other global partners on the "GIGA" initiative, which aims to connect every school to the internet.
