UNICEF’s NEXTGen is growing its presence around Europe. We are now present in three countries.

The group is led by founders Layla Yarjani and Hortense Decaux with leadership in each country driving on the ground initiatives. We work across teams to enable each other and operate as one unified network of passionate young advocates.

Our main objectives are to:

  • Raise funds & awareness for priority programmes in the field
  • Advocate for the issues impacting children
  • Educate ourselves and our peers on world issues
  • Donate our skills and services to support UNICEF programmes and projects

We achieve these objectives by building partnerships, hosting talks/events, writing to government, supporting on the ground & in country UNICEF projects, and driving social media campaigns, to give a few examples.
