Unicef in Action: Committed to Gender Equality and Empowerment of Girls
Jutta - passionate promoter of children's rights and successful marketing manager at a renowned semiconductor manufacturer. She has been an active volunteer with the UNICEF working group in Munich for five years, and thereby enriching her professional life. Her fields of engagement cover educating elementary and secondary school kids and interested adults, accompanying fundraising runs, as well as representing the non-governmental organization at official venues in the greater Munich area. Her contribution to making the world a better place for children is driven by her own experiences from travels and stays abroad during which she has been exposed to different societies and cultures. She speaks about the devastating circumstances in which children grow up in disadvantaged regions on earth. Among these are touching stories from the world's poorest, malnourished, and endangered kids who lack access to water, sanitation facilities, proper education, and who oftentimes are exploited as underage workers or soldiers. She then draws the line to enlighten her audience on how UNICEF is providing help to children and families in need. Success stories are shared to illustrate how donations to UNICEF are deployed to make an impactful change. Particular attention will be drawn to the commitment to gender equality and the empowerment of girls.
