YOUTH PROGROMMES
Young Envoys Programme

UNICEF Young Envoys Programme (the Programme), launched by UNICEF HK in 1996, aims to provide a valuable opportunity for Hong Kong youngsters to explore global and local issues in relation to children's  rights to survival, protection, development and participation. Currently, over 5.84 million children fail to reach their fifth birthday every year, and the majority of those deaths are preventable. The Programme enables local youngsters to better understand the difficulties and challenges children facing globally, and to partner with UNICEF to end children's suffering. Outstanding Young Envoys will be granted an opportunity to visit UNICEF work in the field in a developing country.
