AwoA updated their initiative's about.
Unicef reports that “More than half the world's children are suffering extreme effects of poverty, war and HIV/Aids, denying them a healthy and safe childhood, according to a report published today”. Depending on the country in which they were born, it is most likely a child will not enjoy the same rights. Numerous districts and nations in the Third World face extraordinary aberrations, and the variables being referred to, regardless of whether political, financial, social, cultural, ethnic or strict, can differentially affect every youngster. Notwithstanding the advancement that has been made lately, the circumstance looked by the offspring of our reality is as yet edgy. The most key privileges of minors are disregarded in many pieces of the world, and even in the most financially created nations, not all kids profit by similar rights. I feel lucky to have come into the world in a country like Canada, where I have privileges and rights that other children do not have access to in their country. Which is why, for my initiative, I wanna create a non-governmental association, in which we can raise money, through different actions and help numerous organizations for kids make an impact.

As United Nations Association In Canada celebrates our 75th anniversary and @unitednations 75th Anniversary, we are beyond thrilled to begin our new Global Citizen Highlights! UNA-Canada will be highlighting Canadian individuals whose contributions to their neighbourhood, community, country, have helped break barriers and shape a better life for someone or for Canada or for the world! As a way to honour and celebrate her 90th birthday, UNA-Canada is pleased to highlight our first Global Citizen Muriel Smith! Muriel has been, and remains a vital part of our UNA-Canada Global Citizen family for years - active in our Winnipeg Branch; a mentor and governance leader with our National Board (including service as our National Chair from 1996-1999); an engaged member of civil society delegations to several major UN Conferences (including on the Environment & Development in RIO/1992, Human Rights in Geneva/1993 and on Women in Beijing/1995), and of course, so often as an advocate for gender equity as an elected official and to the annual United Nations Commission on the Status of Women and in everything she does!Muriel has always challenged UNA-Canada to be the best we can as we interact with civil society. She has lead by example as an educator, an activist for human rights in general and women’s rights in particular, as a dedicated - and successful - politician and as a great civil society leader and motivator. If Winnipeg and Manitoba are her home, her reach and powerful, positive influence, has encompassed Canada as a whole and the larger global community. That active engagement has never ceased. UNA-Canada is deeply grateful for Muriel’s contribution and is excited to highlight her as a Global Citizen. (Muriel turns 90 years old today!) For a 25$ donation, you or someone you know can nominate a special individual in your community to receive a virtual Global Citizen recognition and certificate! What does a Global Citizen mean to you? Maybe it’s someone who has broken barriers and shattered the glass ceiling…Maybe it’s someone who has quietly brought you comfort, peace and support during hard times!
