History and Purpose of the Role

Danny Kaye was the first United Nations Children’s Fund Goodwill Ambassador in 1954. Celebrities have followed, acting as international, regional, or national ambassadors, depending on their profile, interests, and desired level of responsibility. The objective of the program is to allow celebrities with a proven interest in UNICEF problems to use their fame to draw attention to significant problems. This may be in the form of public appearances, visits to troubled region that draw attention from the news and use of their political access to advocate UNICEF causes and solutions.[1]
