Ana Ivanovic, the world No. 2 tennis player, has been inaugurated on September 14, 2007 a UNICEF National Ambassador for Serbia at an official ceremony in Belgrade-based primary school “Vladimir Rolovic”. The newly appointed Ambassador has donated funds for the “School without Violence” Programme, which will enable three additional schools in Serbia to begin to implement this programme.
As UNICEF Ambassador, Ana Ivanovic will use her name and fame to advocate for the full realisation of child rights in Serbia, especially in the areas of education and child protection.
“We are happy that Ms. Ana Ivanovic, the world-famous and loved tennis player, has joined the UNICEF family by accepting to perform for us the voluntary position of a National Ambassador”, said Ms. Maria-Luisa Fornara, UNICEF Acting Representative in Serbia. “She has thus demonstrated her firm commitment to promote the rights of all children through the power and potential of sport and to further UNICEF’s mission in building Serbia fit for children.”
Ana was presented with many charming drawings by children of "Vladimir Rolovic" primary school shortly before her UNICEF National Ambassador inauguration.
Below is a selection of the drawings, by the following child-artists.
