The United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund is one of the most prominent organizations responsible for providing funds, food, and school items to children. They’re also on standby 24/7 to assist students who are suffering from malnutrition, infectious diseases, and lack. They have provided tons of assistance to children from across the globe and are still in business.

However, their job isn’t limited to the provision of assistance to children; they equally offer educational assistance in several ways including organizing essay competitions, poetry, and short story creation for children all over the world.

UNICEF family alongside the Standard Group PLC organized a joint competition for children with the aim of giving the children the privilege to air out their views on the most important issues affecting children and what they would like the next Government to do about them. The winners were given the leverage of asking their questions directly to politicians during a special TV debate on children’s issues.

That wasn’t all, the winner also went home with prizes such as;  school bags (children) or t-shirts (young people) from UNICEF, a goodie bag from the Standard Group, and a certificate signed by both UNICEF and the Standard Group.

The work was also set to be featured in the Sunday Standard’s Generation Next magazine, KTN’s Club Kiboko, Ms. President’s Tv Show on KTN and on UNICEF Kenya’s website, and the Standard Group’s website.
