All Children in School


A Joint Commitment between UNICEF
and the Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund


The Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund and the U.S. Fund for UNICEF announced a ten-year joint commitment to support UNICEF’s, “All Children in School” educational initiative.  The campaign is aimed at bringing quality basic education to 115,000,000 children in developing nations, two-thirds of whom are girls.

In one of her last speeches as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, Audrey said: “Children are our most vital resource, our hope for the future. Unless they can be assured of not only physically surviving the first fragile years of life, but also of emotional, physical and social abuse, it is impossible to envisage a world that is free of tension and violence.”  She also believed that, “A quality education has the power to transform societies in a single generation, provide children the protection they need from the hazard of poverty, labor, exploitation and disease, and give them the knowledge, skills and confidence to reach their full potential.”

This is the mission of the Audrey Hepburn Children’s Fund and the spirit with which it joins UNICEF in its “All Children in School” project.
