Campus Unicef at AUP
April 12, 2016
Student club Campus UNICEF started at AUP in Fall 2015 with the aim to offer volunteer and fundraising missions to AUP students interested in children’s rights. Working very closely with UNICEF France through the Paris Comite, Campus UNICEF’s vision is:
"A world where the rights of every child are realized. In everything we do, we work to achieve a world where all children, especially the most vulnerable and disadvantaged, have equal opportunities to survive and thrive."

Viviana Alvarado, Vice-President
Grace Hanley, Secretary

Campus UNICEF activities so far:
- 3D glasses exhibition, March 9
With a table set up in the Combes Gallery Campus UNICEF handed out 3D glasses that featured a video at a UNICEF school inside a Jordan refugee camp.
- La Nuit de L’eau, March 12
The goal of this event was to contribute to UNICEF France’s mission in fundraising and raising awareness of the water situation. Hundreds of millions of people across the world lack access to safe water and sanitation. For this particular event all funds went towards Togo's water situation. Campus UNICEF students participated by swimming laps at the Piscine Jean Boiteux and raised over €200! Clean water shouldn’t be a luxury!
- Paris Breakfast Run, April 1
For this traditional run, UNICEF set up lots of different donation based children's workshops at the Champ de Mars- doll-making, mural painting and face painting. Campus UNICEF helped out with the face-painting!
- Auction for Action Gala, April 21
This upcoming event invites artists to create art to be sold through a silent auction. All proceeds will go towards UNICEF France. All artists at AUP(amateurs or professionals) are invited to participate in this event by submitting pieces of art, in any medium, inspired by the theme of children's rights.
