For more than half a century, celebrities have helped to protect the rights and improve the lives of children and women around the world. By creating public awareness on issues affecting children’s lives and helping to leverage resources, the celebrities who work with UNICEF send a clear message to the public to uphold children’s rights. With a vow to ‘Play Magical Act for Children’ and urging others to do the same – national cricket player Shakib Al Hasan, magician Jewel Aich and film actress Moushumi – have joined forces with UNICEF as ‘UNICEF National Goodwill Ambassadors’ to support and advocate for the children of Bangladesh.
As UNICEF National Goodwill Ambassadors, Shakib, Jewel Aich and Moushumi will work with UNICEF to step up to promote child rights, create mass awareness and promote positive social norms in critical areas such as child labour, girl marriage, birth registration, violence against children, maternal and child health, children and HIV/AIDS and social protection of children living in urban slums.
