UNITED NATIONS CHILDREN’S FUND
Around the world, children are barred from getting their education for several reasons. For many families, they need to children to enter the work force in order to support other children or keep a roof over their heads. In other situations, adequate educational opportunities simply do not reach rural or rural areas. How can we ensure that all students, regardless of location or financial situation, can be guaranteed a quality education?
The United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) was created to defend the world’s most the most vulnerable population. The two largest priorities for this committee will be combatting child labor and educational inequities. Throughout committee sessions, delegates will be asked to put the safety, health, and success of all children first. The Covid-19 pandemic has created another set of obstacles, so all delegates must take those obstacles into consideration when creating creative and sustainable solutions. How can we create a Covid-19 response that will reach all communities? Or rather, how can we include social distancing and other safety precautions in our solutions? This committee must address these issues in both a long and short term timeline. How can we ensure that access to education is not only ensured for this generation for those in 20-50 years as well? The resolutions that come out of this committee must be creative, sustainable, equitable and utilize the resources available to UNICEF.
