In the run-up to Universal Children’s Day on 20 November, UNICEF Ambassador Sir Roger Moore has made an appeal to all young people in Austria.
For more than 20 years the actor has been a dynamic supporter of the charity which protects the rights of children around the world and he now asks for the help of a younger generation. The new Junior Ambassador competition will give children up to the age of 18 the chance to get actively involved and creative with the charity UNICEF.
“Day after day, all over the world, the rights of children are abused. During my 20 years with UNICEF my mission was clear: Children must know their rights and we as adults have a responsibility to help them stand up for their rights,” explained Sir Roger Moore as he spoke of his commitment to the Junior Ambassador competition.
All entries will be judged by a team from UNICEF and the winner will be announced in June next year. The winner will be given the opportunity to work with UNICEF with every entrant receiving a certificate for their involvement with the charity and children’s rights.
