The UNICEF was founded on 11th December 1946. The students of Vikhe Patil Memorial School, Lohegaon, celebrated this day on 12th December 2016 in a special assembly conducted for the students from Std V to X.
The day commenced with the students of Std IIIC conducting the assembly and speaking on the importance of the UNICEF. This was followed by a session with Mr. Munib Riaz CEO of ‘SkillSphere Education’ who spoke to the students on the importance of the UN and the UNICEF, the reasons behind these bodies being formed after the World War II, their initiatives across the world in maintaining peace, reaching out to the refugees, people and children in need etc. Mr. Riaz also spoke to the students on the NGO’s across various cities supporting the UNICEF in their initiatives and ways in which our students could also be a part of the same during their free time and vacations.
The students were left with a spark in their minds to go back home and find out more about the importance of programs run by the two bodies namely the UN and the UNICEF.
